This months Wine Blogging Wednesday has had New Zealand Reds designated as the theme by Cork Dork. Damn fine theme. I seldom purchase Kiwi Reds; they tend towards the expensive end of the price range and thoughts of the green, undeveloped wines of the past still pervade. Dashwood is the 'second wine' from the Vavasour stable, a small producer in the Awatere Valley. Get out the duck here people with those little pancake things only Chinese takeaways seem to get right. A mighty fine red counterpart to the Dashwood Sauvignon.

Wine Tasting Note Dashwood Pinot Noir, 2004, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Available from Oddbins for £9.99.
Oh now this is gorgeous - unscrewing the cap the aroma of red berries just bursts from the bottle. There is more to the nose than simple berries though - it has a delicious complexity coupling those berries with plums, currants and a touch of 'earth'. The palate is ripe, juicily so, and rich in a medium-bodied style. Soft. Good length. Distinct apple edge to the those red berries. Alcohol 14%. Screwcap.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
