Dashwood 2016 is a juicy Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough wine region, South Island. Grapes for this zesty white were sourced from the Awatere Valley there. Light and lean with melon, white nectarine and lime zest on the palate. Perfect for seafood of any kind. Enjoy now. - Community Wine Reviews
