Editorial Reviews for Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Dashwood
A big roasted pepper character on the nose that’s both grassy and vegetal while remaining lively and freshly citrussy. Bright, lean and mineral on the palate with nice cut and a sweet edge of green kiwi fruit up front. Rather complete with nice length. Ripe, rich and zesty. 89pts

Solid NZ sauvignon Blanc. Good value.
This is my favorite NZ SB in this price point. The lime, grapefruit and pineapple flavors blend well with pronounced minerality and slight green finish. High acid makes this uber food-friendly.
External Reviews for Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Dashwood
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.
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.
A strong effort from Vavasourrsquo;s second label, the 2008 Dashwood SB features vibrant aromas of crushed tomato leaf and hints of jalapentilde;o and flavors of green tomato and gooseberry. Itrsquo;s medium in body and slightly creamy in texture, with a crisp, fruit-driven finish.
This winersquo;s zesty grapefruit and passion fruit flavors emphasize the fresh, citrusy side of sauvignon. A little light in the aroma and finish, this makes a good aperitif with any raw shellfish.
This fruity sauvignon bears an intriguing range of green scents, from kiwi to fennel and shizo. Both lush and fresh, itrsquo;s a generously textured white for yellowtail sashimi.
This affordable bottling of New Zealandrsquo;s signature white is broad in texture and distinctive in flavor, with juicy passion fruit, apple and citrus flavors that linger effortlessly on the lively finish. Drink now.
Crisp and lively, a pretty wine with a range of apple, lime and melon flavors. Drink now trough 2001.
