About the Wine
This red wine is made by Dashwood in Marlborough. Fresh, savoury, berry-fruit flavours that are excellent with light game, rich chicken and pork dishes. Formed from primarily Pinot Noir grapes, this wine is vegetarian. Supplied by Foley Family Vineyards.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Dashwood sources grapes from both the Awatere and Wairau valleys: Wairau to the north produces fruit with more tropical fruit flavours; whilst the fruit from Awatere provides more freshness and minerality. The combination of fruit from both results in increased complexity in the finished wines.
The islands here stretch nearly 1,000 miles north to south, and the climate varies from subtropical in Auckland, to positively perishing in the south. 2018 will be remembered by many wineries in here as a year for the record books.Explore New Zealand
