DASHWOOD SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016
Dashwood wines bring the luscious, clean fruit characters of the Wairau Valley into harmony with the flinty, or mineral, characters of the Awatere (resulting from the comparatively cooler but drier temperatures and slightly less fertile soils). Great wine is so much more than just fermented grape juice; it is an alchemy in which unique terroir and skilled winemaking unite. Dashwood creates wines that are true reflections of New Zealands Marlborough region. They are as cool as the winds that whip through our valleys each day and as imposing as the towering mountains that frame the vineyards. Marlborough is a special place for wine. Perhaps its our cloudless skies or mild temperatures or well-drained soils. It could be Dashwoods long growing season or sustainably-farmed vineyards. Whatever the reason, the result is wines that are marked by piercingly vibrant fruit flavors and lively acidity.
The floral symbol on the label is the Pohutukawa, a Maori word meaning drenched with mist. It is an evergreen tree known as the unofficial New Zealand Christmas tree due to its bright red blooms that emerge every December.
