2021 Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

93 Points Bob Campbell MW
In stock
A reference point for quality in Kiwi Sauvignon. Dog Point is made by ex-Cloudy Bay experts and offers beautifully defined character, but nothing aggressive or obviously shouting. Perfect balance, complexity and texture make this a top notch example for the price. A Sav not only for Sav lovers, but lovers of fine wine, this is a future legend and a must-try.

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

93/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Crisp, dry and concentrated sauvignon blanc with nectarine, guava, salty-mineral, capsicum and lemongrass flavours. A serious sauvignon with intensity, length and a backbone of peppery phenolics. 20 SEP 2021" Drink 2021 - 2025

93/100 The Wine Front, Mike Bennie (2020 vintage)

"Flinty, struck match characters, well done, lemon juice, passionfruit, aloe vera – big bouquet. Limey to taste, a little more mellow than the bouquet but sure is puckering and shapely to sip on. Very fine, chalkiness in feel too. Very nice." Drink 2021 - 2023

94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2019 vintage)

"A powerful yet controlled even complex bouquet of SB with aromas of apples and white flowers, wet stones and grapefruit, sweet hay, gooseberry and white peach. Tense, youthful, vibrant, varietal and packed with energy. A core of fruit reflects the impact and power from the bouquet, zippy acidity, some fruit spice and sweet hay all leading to a long finish. What’s not to like!" Drink 2019 - 2021
