Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2012
If you buy no other 2012 New Zealand sauvignon currently on the shelves, don’t miss Dog Point. There’s a consummately crafted dimension to this wine that propels it above the vast sea of sauvignon, a wine of genuine character and interest. A one-fifth portion of wild ferment and lees ageing instils a mineral mouth feel and complexing nuances of struck flint. Carefully regulated yields have produced an impeccably gauged fruit profile that tactically dodges the extremes of underripe herbaceousness and overripe passionfruit, falling neatly into the middle ground of grapefruit, lemon zest, guava and golden delicious apple. A focused acid line and outstanding, lingering, textural persistence make not only for immediate appeal but promise medium-term potential.
Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy. Our philosophy is total involvement by the partners from the vineyard through the winemaking process to marketing regionally distinctive and vineyard expressive wines.

[Gramarcy Tavern] sweet, lemon, orange, widely pleasing, a little out of balance; dont not compare well with the KCrawford or Cloudy Bay
Dog Point have a top end sav/Blanc called Section 94 The vintage I drank was 2006 Funky nose, lively palate and So different to any Sav / Blanc I have drunk
Bright, a little sharp but very nice. Paired well with fish.
I purchased this delicious wine in Ontario..the cost was around $20...the quote for the same wine in BC is more than double...wassup?

External Reviews for Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
A note of reduction blew off to reveal wild, musky scents of pineapple, grapefruit, gooseberry, pepper and dusty stone. Rich, tactile and a bit reduced, showing a chewy texture to the flavors of gooseberry, green tropical fruits, lemon and fresh herbs. Finishes thick, classically dry and long. Very rich and serious sauvignon blanc — and most impressive for the vintage.
Aromas of tropical fruits, ripe citrus, hints of lemongrass and guava. Fine texture and juicy acidity, minerality, lingering crisp finish.
The distinctive, concentrated peach and apricot flavors complement the smooth, fleshy character in this white, with a juicy acidity to keep the flavors fresh while a toasty, cedary note weaves in and out. Drink now.
Nice green fruit and citrus nose; flavors include grapefruit, greener tropical fruits and Meyer lemon, with notes of lime zest. Long, herbaceous finish ends nice and dry. Very lively with a nice acidity.
