I love spring evenings. I get home from work, the sun is still shining, and it is warm outside. When I got home yesterday all I could think about was cooking something light for dinner and enjoying a refreshing glass of white wine. I opened a bottle of Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc and was met with a glass full of tropical and refreshing flavors.
About the Wine- From the Winery
Dashwood 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. This sustainably made wine has 12.5% alcohol and retails for $14.99 (you can find it for around $10). For more information visit www.pasternakwine.com.
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc pours a pale greenish-yellow in the glass. The nose has bright aromas of citrus, honeysuckle, and herbs. The palate is crisp and refreshing. Tastes of tropical fruit, grapefruit, and lemon are followed with a lively finish of white pepper and tart citrus. A really nice Sauvignon Blanc. Grab a few bottles and enjoy the warm weather!
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this wine with Mahi Mahi, tofu teriyaki, or grilled chicken.
My Wine Rating- B+
