Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2020

€26.95
In stock
A classic dry aromatic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense with deliciously refreshing saline acidity. The wine calls for simple fresh seafood but can also be enjoyed as a pre-dinner aperitif with or without social distancing. One of the best vintages the region has experienced in years.

ABV 13%



Winemaking
Handpicked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before fermentation. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 4 months in stainless steel tanks then bottled without fining.

Vintage
A warm growing season with very dry conditions between January and April with only 45mm falling (less than 30% of the average). A season which will be remembered for other reasons however, with a global pandemic affecting staffing movements and logistics but one where calm decision making and patience resulted in perfect ripening conditions, and a very rewarding season. One of the best the region has experienced in recent years.

Located in Marlborough, New Zealand’s premium wine growing region, Dog Point Vineyard is one of Marlborough's oldest privately owned vineyards. It was established in 2002 by partners, Ivan & Margaret Sutherland, and James & Wendy Healy. After working together at Cloudy Bay, Ivan and James decided to return to a more hands-on approach and establish their own wine label. They produce wines that reflect the experience and passion of the people that make them.

Dog Point Vineyard and winery are certified organic under the Biogro New Zealand programme, which is an independent certification process established to promote environmentally friendly, sustainable and responsible practices. These organic philosophies drive their approach to wine making and help ensure the vines are their best for next year’s harvest.

Four wines are produced at Dog Point Vineyard - a sauvignon blanc typical of the Marlborough style, ‘Section 94’, a barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc, a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir.

In every bottle of wine there is impeccable attention to detail and a thoughtful hands-on approach. This focus is expertly partnered with a low interventionist ethos. Fruit is hand-picked from low cropped, estate-grown vines, grown under organic principles, then hand crafted with great care to produce fine wines that are accessible and enjoyable, that will drink well on release or cellar gracefully for many years.

All wines are gluten free and vegan friendly.

Critics Review Bob Campbell, MW: 95/100
I love the purity, precisionand concentration in this powerful organic sauvignon blanc. Peach, guava, melon, saline and oyster-shell flavours are underpinned by taut, ripe acidity. A very attractive sauvignon.

Decanter: 94/100
A lively, refreshing example; well made, lengthy and tasty.
