Product Description

Dog Point is the result of a collaboration between two Cloudy Bay alumni, enologist James Healy and founding viticulturalist Ivan Sutherland, who left Cloudy Bay at the end of 2003.  The 2017 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc is grown on clay soils in Marlborough's Wairau Valley. This soil profile yields a wine with more defined citrus characteristics than the more common gravel soils. The grapes are harvested by hand and whole-cluster pressed, then fermented in stainless steel. The result is a fresh and intensely concentrated New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with classic aromas of lemon and grapefruit, complimented by elderflowers, with smoky and flinty undertones. A juicy and vibrant palate of pure citrus flavors leaves a lengthy finish with refreshing, balanced acidity. Pairs nice with fresh, simple seafood dishes especially oysters.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent estate-grown Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: Wairau Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand
Aging: 3 months on fine lees in stainless steel tanks

93 Points - James Suckling

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"An aromatic version, with intriguing beeswax, honeysuckle, lanolin and marmalade notes that give way to a smooth, lush core of apricot and lime zest flavors. Mouthwateringly smooth and juicy, showing appealing complexity. Drink now. 16,000 cases imported." -MW, 5/31/18

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc shows hints of green on the nose but sits more firmly in the fig and stone fruit camp. It's medium-bodied, with a white grapefruit element that extends from start to finish, providing a backbone for the riper notes. Clean and refreshing, it should be consumed over the next year or two." -JC, 2/28/18
