Pure focused fruit aromas of ripe citrus, white peach, hints of lemongrass, and a wild strand of combed honey, a pleasant fragrance of white blossom with an underlying yeast influence attained from a naturally occurring fermentation in old oak barrels for a period of 18 months.
A unique style of Sauvignon Blanc with considerable texture and complexity, slightly funky, plus vibrant layers of savoury herbs, leading to a chalky minerality with a racy acid and lingering long finish.

Back for the second year in a row in the highest category of the Viva Top 50 is Dog Point's flagship barrel-matured Section 94. One of the country's greatest sauvignon blancs, its 2012 release is another powerhouse of a wine with mouth-filling mango and papaya fruit; notes of herb, smoke, flint, a subtle toasty edge and racy grapefruit acid.
