2019 Dog Point Marlborough Pinot Noir
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
96/100 Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier
"Dried herb nose and palate, quite savoury and fleshy, cruchy, complex. Ticks a lot of boxes on concentration and finesse. some fresha dn older rose aromas and flavours. some toasty wood ingress, savoury, dry, lengthy, new and very youthful."
95/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Medium-bodied, supple pinot noir with floral, red rose, violet, dark cherry and a hint of cassis supported by a backbone of fine, peppery tannins. Accessible now but with good cellaring potential. 20 SEP 2021." Drink 2021 - 2029
5 Stars Michael Cooper
"This classy, finely structured red is estate-grown on the south side of the Wairau Valley, hand-picked and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (30 per cent new in 2019). The 2019 vintage is deep ruby, mouthfilling and supple. Full of cellaring potential, it has rich, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with nutty oak, and excellent vigour and harmony. Best drinking 2024+. Certified organic."
