Whilst most of you are familiar with the consistent exceptional quality of the Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc, it may come of a surprise that their best wine may in fact be their Pinot Noir. Bob Campbell MW says "this must be one of Marlborough’s most consistently top reds.. and that the wine is "dense with underlying power and obvious potential but dangerously drinkable now". Throw in the fact that this wine is certified organic and you know it's something special.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"A bright perfumed, supple expression of Marlborough pinot noir from clay hill slopes. The fruit is supported by bright florals of rose and violets with crunchy red berry fruit and dried herb notes. The palate is succulent with alluring red cherry, brown spices and silky fine boned tannins. This wine has all the makings of a long lived Marlborough pinot noir and matches perfectly with duck, red meats (particularly venison and lamb), and mushroom dishes.

Comprising six different pinot noir clones from vines dating back to 1983. Vines are cropped at 5 tonnes/ha (35hl/ha), hand harvested and hand sorted, prior to de-stemming (25% whole bunch included). The fruit is fermented in small stainless open top fermenters without pumping. Fermentation is conducted by indigenous yeasts over a period of 2-3 weeks prior to pressing into French oak barrels (30% new) for 18 months."


5 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, December 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"the Dog Point Pinot Noir 2018 is a supple, vibrant, organic pinot noir with cherry, violet, blackcurrant leaf, spice, anise and subtle nutty oak flavours. It’s a high-energy wine with impressive purity. An elegant and youthful pinot noir with obvious cellaring potential."


Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Complex, varietal and very inviting bouquet with aromas of sweet red berries, plum, tea and roses layered between scents of vanilla and mild toasty wood spices. On the palate – youthful, firm, fruity, varietal and dry. Flavours of cherry and plum then vanilla an raw sugar of newish oak precede textures of firm chalky tannins and medium+ acidity. A wine that still required development time to soften the tannins a little more and allow for more integration and harmony. Well made and ready to enjoy from late 2021 through 2027+."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


95/100 Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com (2017 Vintage)
"This is very convincing, complex and downright impressive pinot noir. The intense aromas of ripe cherries and plums are framed in such intensely attractive oak spice and earthy, sous-bois complexity. The palate has regal, polished and powerful tannin and carries a vibrant core of very attractive, rich dark cherries."


94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, December 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"There’s a fair amount of reductive char and toasty spicy oak here, aniseed and black cherry, dried flowers and wet earth. It’s medium-bodied, clod earth and toasted spice, dry gravelly tannin, sappy dark fruit, and a firm long finish. Savoury and powerful. Needs a little more time in bottle."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"This classy, finely structured red is estate-grown on the south side of the Wairau Valley, hand-picked and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (35 per cent new in 2017). The 2017 vintage is a very deeply coloured, age-worthy wine. Weighty and supple, it has concentrated, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, complex and savoury, and a finely balanced, harmonious finish. Best drinking 2022+. Certified organic."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
