    Winemaker's Notes:

    This classically styled wine shows lifted melon, citrus and fresh tropical notes on the nose. These flavors follow through to the richly structured palate which has a long crisp finish. Blending fruit from both the Awatere and Wairau Valley regions of Marlborough benefits the wine with aromatics being enhanced by the Wairau Valley component and a mineral note being imparted from the Awatere Valley component.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Silky, with green apple and melon flavors on a lively frame. Drink now.

    Second Label Wine (3/15/2011)
    This straw colored Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent representation of the Marlborough style. It is crisp with a pleasant tartness and great acidity. On the nose you’ll find plenty of floral notes along with great tropical fruit such as lychee and passion fruit. I also get quite a bit of melon and lime in this wine. I would not hesitate to plop down $12 for this little guy. It’s not particularly complex, but it’s well balanced and would certainly be a great wine to buy in bulk for a party or for just sipping on the patio on a hot summer day. Food Pairing Suggestions: The most important thing to note when pairing food with this wine is acid. This Dashwood is a high acid wine, so you want to use it to compliment high acid foods or to cut through cream or butter on heavier dishes. I tend to prefer high acid dishes with Sauvignon Blanc, so I’d suggest things like ceviche, boiled shrimp or oysters on the half shell. My favorite dish with this wine, however, would be a simple green salad with a vinaigrette dressing topped with a medallion of fried goat cheese. You could also just eat a bunch of goat cheese with this wine as goat cheese and Sauvignon Blanc are as near to a perfect pairing as you will ever find.
