Classic and classy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from the Wairau Valley

Dog Point is an area of Marlborough named after pioneering shepherds in the region whose dogs' either wandered off or became lost.   These dogs eventually breaded to become a marauding pack that attacked the very flocks they were meant to protect.    The shepherds eventually were forced to cull the dogs and thus the name became Dog Point.  

This is one of the earliest private vineyards established in the Wairau Valley.  Dog Point’s white wines are mostly planted on free draining silty clay loams on the flats, soils that predominantly express citrus and grapefruit flavours. 

Tasting notes

30 December 2013 by Michael Hutton

RAYMOND CHAN, NEW ZEALAND, OCTOBER 2013, 18.5/20

Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. This has a very densely concentrated nose with interwoven layers of green stonefruits, citrus, herbs and flinty lees complexities that open in volume. Dry to taste and medium bodied, concentrated and well-packed flavours of herbs, stonefruits, citrus and minerals show with lovely richness, energy and tension. The fruit forms a fine, dry, textural line with lively underlying acidity and the flavours are tightly bound and flow with great drive. The flavours reveal layers of interest and detail and carry through to a very firm, long and sustained, dry finish with herbs and mineral nuances. This is a concentrated and complex Sauvignon Blanc with excellent tension and layers of stonefruit and minerally flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel, 20% by indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 60 days on lees. 18.5+/20
