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

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

94/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh

"A bit of toasty char, dried herbs, carob and coffee grounds, dried roses and dark cherry. Powerful, dark cherry, damp earthy coffee slightly bitter things, tight ripe sooty tannin, sappy acidity, and a firm, long and peppery finish. Intense, but good. No shortage of character. Quite often need a bit of air, these Dog Point Pinots." Drink 2021 - 2028+
