Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2018
It's always kind of a dilemma deciding how much to say about something. If you are talking about a great functional wine at a value price, an excess of superlatives and an expansive story could end up being counterproductive. On the other hand, if we are too concise with our words, people might interpret that as a lack of enthusiasm. Be that as it may, the Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2018 deserves a word or two. This has been a staple for us during long stretches of our history. There has been some label tweaking and some inconsistencies along the way, but this is the best version of this wine in many years. Many examples of the Kiwi 2018s are overtly acidic, but the one hits all the right notes with tropical and grapefruit notes, bright but not overly aggressive acidity, none of the 'green' flavors that plague many 'value' Kiwi bottlings, and substance on the palate. One of the world's great Sauvignon Blanc values at under $10.
