Offers a toasty popcorn kernel note up front followed by pure lemon and tangerine juice with a refreshing mouthwatering finish. Drink now. MW Wine Spectator.


Winemaker's Notes:

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 is a bright straw green. The nose is a mixture of fresh citrus and tropical fruits. The palate is rich and full bodied, displaying an excellent balance of fruit and acidity with a lingering fresh lime finish. This is a great match with white meats, pale cheeses and seafood - especially scallops and oysters. This is an ideal wine to enjoy young but may be cellared for 2+ years.
