Dada 1

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
Labelled simply as 'a blended, dry white wine from New Zealand', but expensive, Dada 1 2007 is from a Hawke's Bay producer. It is not labelled as Sauvignon Blanc because that would 'automatically pigeonhole the wine and the benchmark default to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc'. Full of personality, it is dry, peachy, spicy and slightly toasty, in a complex style with a long finish. The 2008 vintage was grown at Mangatahi and fermented with indigenous yeasts in tanks (60 per cent) and French oak casks (40 per cent). Highly distinctive, it is weighty, rich, ripe and rounded, with tropical-fruit flavours, slightly spicy and biscuity, dry and complex. Alluviale Blanc (above) is from the same winemakers.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
A modern Kiwi take on the big-gun white Bordeaux style that has plenty of complexity and swagger about it (heavy bottle included). Smells of gooseberry and creamed spices, hazelnuts, lemon rind and wild grasses. The palate has terrific texture and weight, with a flavoursome core of punchy citrus fruit that holds as the nutty complexity arrives through the finish. Superb wine.
