About the Wine
This delightful white wine from Dashwood is made in Marlborough. You won't find this wine stocked in multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Foley Family Vineyards. Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc is a delighful wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added suplhites but is suitable for vegetarian drinkers. Herbaceous and zesty, perfect with white fish, asparagus, goats' cheese or dishes with green herbs.
Sauvignon has boomed in recent years. Its crisp acidity makes it a popular choice as an aperitif or with food. It's an aromatic variety, enjoyed when young, and mostly un-oaked. Produced in a variety of methods in the Old and New World resulting in a light and minerally style to more tropical flavours.
- Green Peppercorn
- Honeydew Melon
- Passion Fruit
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
