Expert Reviews

Dog Point Vineyard, which routinely produces one of New Zealand’s best sauvignon blancs, has a winner in their 2011 Pinot Noir Marlborough. On the nose a sweet cherry aroma is lifted by a floral topnote. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, this shapely, suave pinot displays generous flavors of ripe red and darker berries and spices. With its fine-grained tannins and persistent aftertaste, this pinot is delicious right now. Stephen Tanzer

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy.

Our philosophy is total involvement by the partners from the vineyard through the winemaking process to marketing regionally distinctive and vineyard expressive wines.

Marlborough's Wairau Valley is the major grape growing region of New Zealand, a confined geographical area at the northern tip of the South Island. Abundant sunshine, low rainfall and cool autumn nights characterise our long growing season, enabling the slow evolution of a rich array of vibrant fruit flavours.

Fruit for our wines is sourced from selected vineyard plantings dating back to the late 1970's. These older well-established vines situated on free draining silty clay loams are supplemented with fruit from closely planted hillside vines with a clay loam influence.
