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. Michael Cooper calles the 2021 release "one of the most impressive yet". Throw in the fact that this wine is certified organic and you know it's something special.

Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Dark and brooding aromas of doris plum, baking spices and brambles, with dried herbal notes and musky florals of old fashioned roses. Bold, dark fruits lead on the palate, with an energy and drive that offers great enjoyment. The acidity brings freshness and the supple, fine-grained tannins that build show fine pedigree from a great year for Marlborough Pinot Noir. This powerful and concentrated expression is bound to reward further cellaring. It should prove to be long lived.

Hand picked and chilled overnight prior to handsorting. 70% destemmed and 30% whole bunches included. Fermented in small stainless open top fermenters with 100% indigenous yeasts over a period of 3 weeks prior to pressing into French oak barrels for eighteen months (30% new). A cool and frosty start to the growing season and flowering period, naturally reduced yields to our lowest levels in over 20 years. Novembers rain was welcomed prior to the driest summer on record with only 66mm (50% lower than average) over this period. Temperatures were warm, only slightly above average, which enabled a smooth, steady growing season with little disease pressure."

5 Stars Michael Cooper, October 2022 (2021 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 (typically 30-35 per cent new). The 2021 vintage is one of the most impressive yet. Deep ruby, it has a highly fragrant, inviting bouquet. Mouthfilling, savoury and supple, it has rich, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, refined tannins, and lovely depth and harmony. Already delicious, it'a drink-now or cellaring proposition. Certified organic."

Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Ripe, fruity, varietal and complex bouquet with aromas of red cherry and raspberry flesh, some red licorice and vanilla, layers of wood smoke and plum then a clay stone mineral quality. These ideas repeat and come alive on the palate with youthful polished tannins and acidity for contrast. Dry and delicious with salivating textures and flavours, fresh red fruits and barrel spice highlights and a lengthy finish with complexity and charm. Best drinking from 2023 through 2030."
