Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Last week we attended a tasting featuring the finest of Sauvignon Blanc from around the world. Chile, California, Loire Valley, Australia and of course New Zealand were all represented at this event. Having tasted through each and every wine at the event, we unanimously decided that the wine of the show was Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc 2006 (90 PTS WINE SPECTATOR) from Marlborough, New Zealand. New Zealand is making the finest Sauvignon Blanc in the world today. Crisp, clean, refreshing and zesty, these are the characteristics we love about great quality Sauvignon Blanc and this is what Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc is all about; a beautiful, energizing white wine that is absolutely perfect for the summer. Lovers of great Sauvignon Blanc, get your glasses ready, cause at $13.99 this is the best Sauvignon Blanc we have tasted this summer. Tasting Notes: The nose is intense and fragrant with ripe stone fruit and herbaceous flavours with a touch of asparagus indicating the wine is starting to develop tertiary flavours. Focused and ripe, with outstanding intensity of lime juice, guava, grapefruit and stone fruit flavors, wrapped with pointed minerality and lingering sweet pea notes. The palate is still fresh, however, with vibrant, fruity mouth feel and succulent acidity that make this a delicious wine to drink now.

Very representative kiwi Sauv Blanc, fruit-forward, long on tart grapefruit and grass clippings, short on finesse and earthiness. Good QPR quaffer for $11.

Amazed by how good a $10 wine can be. This is a fresh, light, tasty wine with tart apple and citrus flavors and a grassy/herby finish.

Lemon-lime, stone and green pear flavors have very good depth, with lingering grapefruit, green bell pepper and grass notes. Drink now.

Lively, juicy style has tangy lime and passion fruit aromas and flavors that persist on the clean finish. Focused and ripe, with outstanding intensity to lime juice, guava, grapefruit and stone fruit flavors, wrapped with pointed minerality and lingering sweet pea notes.
