Dashwood Gold Medal & Double Trophy Success

Dashwood Gold Medal & Double Trophy Success image

Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc was one of the stars at Saturday night’s Air New Zealand Wine Awards scooping an Elite Gold Medal and an impressive two trophies. Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc beat all comers in the highly contested blue riband Sauvignon Blanc category and toasted this success with the prized Open White Wine Trophy.

Success of this calibre for a commercially available wine like Dashwood does not come along very often. We are thrilled with the result!

The judging panel were mesmerised by this wine “This smashing beauty shows perfumed aromas of passion fruit, lime zest and subtle capsicum. Impressively concentrated and intense, perfectly balanced.”

Having arrived from the United States the same morning, Bill Foley, President of Foley Family Wines, was thrilled to be part of the gala awards night held at Auckland’s Langham Hotel.

Nick Hern, Chief Executive of EuroVintage, was delighted with Dashwood’s success “A superb result for a superb wine, it is great to see a wine as readily available as Dashwood receive such success. Quality drinking at a quality price is what Dashwood has been able to offer year in year out.”

This win follows on from the success of the 2010 vintage at the New World Top 50 where it received a Gold Medal and Top 50 status only last month.
