Dog Point Vineyard represents the peak expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is produced from grapes hand harvested from low-yielding vines spread across 8 parcels within the Wairau Valley. Sorted both in the vineyard and in the cellar, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 2-3 months in tanks, bottled without fining, and aged further in bottle.
“This offers a complex take on fruit-driven sauvignon style with fresh limes and lemons, as well as peaches on offer and there’s a succulent wrap of smooth-textured fruit to close. Drink now. Screw cap.” – James Suckling
“The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is on the tropical end of the spectrum, with hints of guava, pineapple and nectarine—a real fruit bowl. It’s medium-bodied and silky in texture, with a long, flavorful finish.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
