Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Dashwood is a brand of wines produced by Vavasour in the Awatere Valley in New Zealand. These wines use fruit sourced from the Awatere as well as Wairau Valley, which gives them a balance of ripened, fruit-forward flavors and minerality. These are everyday drinking wines meant to be consumed young upon release.

lime, citrus notes combined with grapefruit and a little honeysuckle. crisp, fresh, nicely balanced with a bit of minerality on the palate.

Straw colored in the glass. Intensely strong nose and powerful flavors of apple, pineapple, melon, grass and minerals. Nicely balanced acidity and reasonably complex. Harmonious balance in all its elements. Lingers on the finish. Very highly recommended. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10
Powerful and pleasant pineapple and kiwi on the nose, with a flavor that follows suit. A very refreshing wine, which should not be drunk with a thirst because it would be easy to over-indulge. Quite unique, a fun wine.
Wonderful with Maine scallops citrus butter sauce!
External Reviews for Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc
This boasts typical Marlborough characters of passion fruit and herbal notes, layered with a hint of nectarine and extra pungency. It’s round in the mouth without being especially concentrated, finishing short but pleasant.
Crisp and juicy, with white grapefruit, lime, green apple and Asian pear notes that have a mouthwatering acidity. Drink now.
Light-bodied, with vivid passion fruit, lime and fresh herb and cut grass notes. Refreshing acidity gives this plenty of momentum on the finish. Drink now.
Pale bright yellow. Pungent aromas of tropical fruits, pepper and smoke. The palate offers decent concentration to the flavors of grapefruit pith and white pepper, with a repeating suggestion of tropical fruits. The moderately persistent finish shows more saline minerality than fruit.
Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw in color. The nose has stone fruit, citrus and fresh tropical notes thatl eap from the glass. The palate is expressive with stone fruit, citrus and fresh tropical flavors that linger on through the crisp finish.
Reticent nose hints at grapefruit and spices. Supple and round, but with a firm edge to the fresh lime and grapefruit flavors. The lemony finish shows good breadth and subtle sweetness.
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.
