Undoubtedly one of New Zealand's best, this convincing wine showcases both the serious future of Marlborough Pinot and the experience of these old hands in the region. Though no fruit bomb it has generous fruit depth and a fine, supple texture with beautiful complexity and harmony, partly thanks to low intervention winemaking and indigenous yeast. Serious investment plus high artisanship make this world class for an ordinary price. Grace your cellar or enjoy it right now.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Noir

Its Origins

Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable winegrowing experience of Ivan Sutherland and James Healy, the former chief viticulturalist and head winemaker at Cloudy Bay. After leaving Cloudy Bay, Ivan and James began making wines from Sutherland's own vineyards, which were planted in the 70's and 80's. Additional fruit is sourced from selected vineyard plantings dating back to the late 1970's. The first vintage with the Dog Point label was 2004, using 2002 fruit. Over 200 hectares of vines are farmed, with sustainable/organic practices.

What The Critics Say

19-/20 Raymond Chan

"Dark, deep, ruby-rd colour with dark purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is finely concentrated with bright and complex detailed aromas of dark red berry and cherry fruit intermixed with dark herbs and whole cluster aromatic stalk notes and some earthiness, unfolding dark red floral, raspberry liqueur and liquorice elements. Medium-bodied, the palate is refined and tightly concentrated with gently rich and plush flavours of dark red berry fruits, plums and liquorice entwined with spices, herbs and savoury whole cluster stalk elements, as well as violet florals. The wine has fine-grained tannins and structure balancing the sweet fruit, with integrated acidity lending drive and line. The wine carries to a refined, lingering finish of dark fruits and savoury herb and floral detail. This is an elegantly concentrated, rich Pinot Noir with dark berry fruit and complexing herb and spice notes, and a refined structure. Match with pork, lamb, beef and venison over the next 6 years. A blend of clones, 32% 777, 21% 667, 16% 5, 14% Abel, 10% 115 and 7% 10/5, from the ‘Dog Point’, ‘Yarrum’ and ‘Settlement’ sites, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 15% whole clusters to 14.0% alc., and aged 18 months in 40% new French oak. 19.0-/20 Apr 2016"
