Another superb wine from Dog Point. Just released, this is consistently one of New Zealand's best Sauvignon Blancs from Marlborough stalwarts Ivan Sutherland and James Healy. Years of experience in Marlborough really shines through. 

Youthful and incredibly intense Sauvignon that opens up in the glass to reveal full on fruit flavours of citrus, passionfruit and fresh herbs. A wine of strong focus and substance with a flinty minerality and salivating acidity that balances and draws out the ripe fruit sweetness to a wine of considerable length."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Concentrated sauvignon blanc in quite a ripe style with nectarine, stone fruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and red capsicum flavours. Very appealing and quite textural wine with good weight and a lengthy finish. A class act."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The classy 2016 vintage is highly scented, very fresh and vibrant. Weighty, it has searching, ripe grapefruit/lime flavours, firm acid spine and a dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. Highly concentrated and tightly structured, it's a very harmonious wine, arguably the best vintage yet."
94/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front (2016 Vintage)
"Opens with that sexy, flinty, smoky scent, all crushed rocks and minerals amongst green melon, lime and lemon rind, floral things. The palate is tight, racy, scintillating for acidity and its, again, mineral-charged feel. Amongst the skeletal, mouthwatering feel, a drizzle of juiciness to keep you hounding at your glass. It’s pure, driven, ultra-refreshing, brilliant drinking."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2016 Vintage)
"Wow, pow – the ravishing and striking bouquet of passionfruit and grapefruit with a hint of peach follows through to the juicy, tangy palate that has a flinty underflow to the vibrant flavours. An absolutely fantastic sauv blanc with partial wild yeast fermentation and lees ageing adding to the body weight and textural concentration with refreshing acidity throughout and phenomenal length."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, January 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is full with harmoniously presented aromas of ripe green stonefruits, showing nectarines and greengages along with aromatic fresh herbs, capsicums and a subtle layering of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, crisp and zesty with bright, racy acidity enlivening the flavours of ripe gooseberries and green stonefruits. The flavours are softly balanced and integrated, and combine with soft phenolic textures to lend good mouthfeel and presence. The fruit has an underlying richness and lusciousness, enhanced by the acidity, and carries to a long, fine-textured, dry finish. This is a harmonious-fruited Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of gooseberries and green stonefruits, on a brisk, racy, fine-textured palate. Match with herb-marinated seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2+ years. Fruit from multiple sites predominantly Lower Brancott, Renwick, Fairhall, Omaka, with some Rapaura material, stainless-steel, 25% fermented with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc. and 3.7 g/L RS."
93/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Very distinctive bouquet, highly aromatic with specific aromas of fresh apple, grapefruit & lemon, and wine-making technique using lees effect adding depth to the bouquet, maybe some old barrel. On the palate - a dry wine with a core of citrus and tree fruit flavours, a hint of tropical, piercing acidity and salivating lengthy after taste. Totally drinkable now and through 2019."
