Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2010
92 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Bright pale yellow. Knockout, varietally expressive nose offers musky grapefruit peel, lemon, orange, tangerine, anise, pepper and tarragon. Densely packed and penetrating, with superb definition to the flavors of lemon, grapefruit, licorice and peppery herbs. A floral element gives added lift to the middle palate. Really pristine and uncompromising on the very long, spicy finish. Conveys outstanding energy and yet this beauty is pliant rather than hard. (Sep/Oct 2011)
