    Maybe it’s because the wine’s produced by an established, premium winery (Vavasour) and owned by a loaded Yank Billionaire (Bill Foley) who probably has more money than he knows what to do with, we’re not sure but we do know this Dashwood Pinot Gris has well and truly backed up its reputation for being one of the best value labels in NZ!

    Supposedly a secondary label, you do have to wonder whether someone got the tanks mixed up at Vavasour!

    Following the trend of colour coding their bottle caps – their 2018 Pinot Gris has an eye-catchingly bright orange cap. Under the cap you’ll find a simply delicious off-dry style Gris bursting with lush, stone fruit flavours, just a lick of sweetness and a touch of spice. It is simply divine and a no brainer as your go-to quaffer for summer and beyond. If it doesn’t sell out well before then!
