Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc

new zealand wine  %tages Dashwood Sauvignon BlancThis is going to be a quick, to-the-point review.
It’s another Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, and this is from the Dashwood brand. I know some folks in the wine world don’t like to use the word, “brand” but that’s what it is. Anyway, Dashwood is produced by Vavasour — which, as I mentioned in another recent review, is owned by Foley Family Wines from Sonoma.

While this is subdue characteristically proper for a sauvignon blanc, it’s not nearly as grassy or grapefruity as I’d expect from New Zealand. The nose has a honestly powerful mineral quality, as well as melon, citrus and nettle. The palate brings a lot more citrus than the aromas would lead you to believe. It has flavors of grapefruit, melon and green apple, with excellent concentration. The acidity is just right.
Although it’s a slightly different than I’d expect from New Zealand, it’s subdue a nice sauvignon blanc.
