Overview

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.

Expert Reviews

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. Jo Burzynska, Viva NZ Herald, (APR/2014)

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.
