External Reviews for Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc
Bright apples and tropical fruit balanced with the flavors of gooseberry and green grass so typical of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely aromas of limestone and cool, fresh fruit lead you in. Very clear and vibrant.
Boisterous aromas of gooseberries are found in the nose of the 2002 Sauvignon Blanc. It is rich, highly expressive, satin-textured, and well-balanced. Loads of tangy melon, gooseberry, and spice flavors make up its medium-bodied personality. Drink this beauty over the next 2-3 years.
This crisp, zingy Sauvignon Blanc displays classic aromas and flavors of green apple, lime peel and gooseberry. It's a food-friendly wine whose tart acidity will support a wide range of poultry, cheese and grilled veggies. The pretty finish is long and spicy.
Lithe, crisp style offers lovely, pure lime and passion fruit flavors that come off as refined rather than aggressive. Drink now.
Vivid in flavor, crisp and open in texture, nicely balanced to show off plenty of lime, cream, passion fruit and apple flavors. Drink now.
Lively style brims with juicy tropical fruit, lime and mineral flavors, lingering nicely on the polished finish. Drink now.
Pale yellow. Aromas of soft citrus fruits, herbs and spices. Fresh and intensely flavored but at the same time round, with flavors of peach and ripe citrus fruits. A fruit-driven style that combines enticing sweetness with harmonious, juicy acidity.
