Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) 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 Zealand’s 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 it’s our cloudless skies or mild temperatures or well-drained soils. It could be Dashwood’s long growing season or sustainablyfarmed vineyards. Whatever the reason, the result is wines that are marked by piercingly vibrant fruit flavors and lively acidity. Dashwood has been tending vineyards and making wine in Marlborough for over twenty years, striving to minimize or eliminate any activities that are wasteful or harmful to the environment so that future generations can continue to enjoy the extraordinary landscape.

    (2010 Vintage) A strong effort from Vavasour's second label, the 2008 Dashwood SB features vibrant aromas of crushed tomato leaf and hints of jalapeño and flavors of green tomato and gooseberry. It's medium in body and slightly creamy in texture, with a crisp, fruit-driven finish.

    (2008 Vintage) This wine shows lifted passionfruit and fresh tropical notes on the nose. These flavours follow through on to the richly structured palate, which has a long crisp finish.
