2021 Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
The wine is distinct and punchy with layered aromas of guava, gooseberry, lime, and grapefruit. The palate is concentrated driven by flavors of green tropical fruits and citrus with an elegant and energetic finish.
Dashwood embraces the natural beauty of the coastlines and unique flora and fauna that are synonymous with New Zealand. Taking inspiration from the native Pohutukawa that flowers in summertime along New Zealand’s coastlines, our wines embody the care and respect we have for our precious environment.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Grapes are selected at full ripeness from Marlborough’s two wine-growing valleys, the Wairau Valley and the Awatere Valley. After harvest, they are immediately pressed into stainless steel tanks. Yeast strains are selected to enhance Sauvignon Blanc specific aromas and fermentation is kept at cool temperatures to preserve fresh intense aromatics and fruit purity.
Since 1989, Dashwood wines have been crafted by blending fruit sourced from these neighboring yet distinct coastal terroirs. Our wines are true reflections of the Marlborough region: as cool as the winds in our valleys, and as imposing as the mountains that frame our vineyards.
