Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy. Their philosophy is total involvement by the partners from the vineyard through the winemaking process to marketing regionally distinctive and vineyard expressive wines.
Fresh, intensely concentrated aromas of tropical fruits infused with ripe citrus notes, complemented by lifted hints of lemongrass and passionfruit. Palate Fine texture and acidity, a degree of minerality and a lasting, refreshingly crisp finish.
“It’s hard to fault this release. You could put this in an encyclopaedia filed under Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It’s quintessential in herbal whiffs, passionfruit and citrus fruitiness, a touch of the gooseberry tang and yet there’s an underlying flintiness and talc-like mineral sweetness in perfume too. It’s pure, racy, driven and then shows some juiciness to woo you further. Young, fresh feeling, zesty, flinty again, with fine chalky fringes then squeaky acidity to close. Drinkability is so high. I’m not mad, or having a weird day, this is just one of the best examples of its ilk.” – 95 Points Mike Bennie
