Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Section 94 2007
The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district. "These were days of few fences, of boundary riders and boundary keeping dogs". Shepherds' dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off and eventually bred into a marauding pack which attacked local flocks. Their home was a tussock and scrub covered hill, overlooking the Wairau Plains, designated by the early settlers as Dog Point. This Sauvignon Blanc is straw green. The nose is has ripe tropical and citrus fruits with aromatic nuances of white flowers against a yeasty background of lees complexity. This is a complex full bodied wine with unique varietal flavour of citrus fruits enhanced by a degree of minerality and chalky textured lees characters. Match this with fish, poultry and vegetable dishes and especially aromatic white cheeses.
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.
