Wine of the Week – Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc, 2013

Summer’s winding down but we still crave the crisp whites that cool us on hot, sultry days. The Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from New Zealand reached out and grabbed our attention this week with its beautiful combination of flavors from guava, lemongrass and grapefruit to tropical fruits with a lingering finish. “Bright” describes this wine well but so do “crisp,” “dry” and “fruit forward.” It contains 12.5% ABV, is moderately priced and offers good value to diners and restaurateurs alike.
