Very complex on the nose with notes of smoky flint, dried chili, roast chili, a hint of sulfur, and more vegetal notes. A bit of green bean, green pea. This is a very broad and soft vintage for Section 94, lacking some of the firmness of previous vintages but making up for it with a round, almost lush mouth-feel. The flavors here are mostly orchard fruit tones with only hints of tropical character, though good acids drives the finish, adding some verve back into the equation. Juicy lemon tones on finale. 90pts

Complex on the nose and richly textured in the mouth, this wine delivers it all. Hints of struck flint and wild onion accent grapefruit aromas, while the flavors range easily from pink grapefruit and red currant to delicate herb shadings. Itandrsquo;s full without being too full, with a potent yet refreshing finish that seemingly lingers forever.

20% of Dog Pointandrsquo;s 2010 Sauvignon Blanc was naturally fermented. It offers expressive notes of fresh grapefruit, lemon zest, kumquat and under-ripe pineapple with hints of bay leaf, fennel seed and baking bread. Medium bodied with a wonderful concentration of citrus, tropical and spice flavors, it gives a great backbone of refreshing acidity and a long yeasty finish. Drink it now to 2014.

This distinctive white features a whiff of toasted popcorn kernel, giving way to a juicy mouthful of lemon, lime, melon and mineral flavors and bright acidity. Drink now.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright straw green. Refreshingly intense concentration of citrus, tropical fruits and fragrant fresh summer herbs, underpinned by an appealing degree of minerality. Generous full bodied wine displaying an excellent balance of fruit and acidity with a fine citrus infused finish, a portion of indigenous ferment adding depth and richness. Match with seafood – especially oysters, scallops and mussels, but also salads, white meats and mild cheeses. Ideally enjoyed young, but may be cellared for several years.
