Dashoood 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

This crisp Sauvignon Blanc is from the Awatere Valley in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. New Zealand has built a strong reputation for Sauvignon Blanc and the Dashwood 2007 Sauvignon Blanc lives up to it.

On the nose you get aromas of citrus - especially grapefruit. Its almost refreshing and thirst quenching to just smell this on a hot summer day, and it does not disappoint once you taste it. In addition to citrus, you also get a hint of peach on the palate, and a wonderful, crisp acidity. Wine and Spirits gave this a 91 and at a price in the $10-12 range it is well worth it.

Drink on its own on a hot summer day or pair with cheese, shellfish, or sushi.
