Wine Description

Our Pinot Noir is bold, fresh, direct, elegant and balanced. It delivers ripe, black cherry fruit notes and tannins that are soft, broad and wellintegrated. 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 sustainably-farmed 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. With every step of the winemaking process our goal is to preserve the incredible aromatics and scintillating structure of our wines. After harvesting, we keep the fruit as cool as possible to retain bright, fresh Marlborough fruit flavours. Gentle crushing and cold fermentations help to preserve the personality of the variety and the influence of the site. Our Pinot Noir is aged in new and used French oak barriques to add complexity and tannins.
