Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List


Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc always offers something a bit more than the vast majority of Marlborough Sauvignons. There is an extra level of complexity and flavour interest that takes the variety to a different level. There is a smokiness evident on first opening, but this disappears to reveal the layers of juicy fruit. From the outstanding 2021 vintage, this is a standout wine.


Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Our version of the classic aromatic Marlborough style of Sauvignon Blanc. Grapes are hand-picked from eight of our own vineyards within the Wairau Valley. Cropped at an average of 7.5 tonnes/hectare (50hl/ha). The fruit is whole bunch pressed, cold settled before fermentation and 2-3 months aging in stainless steel tanks. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeast. Bottled without fining.

A lifted and perfumed Sauvignon Blanc with strong citrus characteristics leading into ripe tropical tones. Complimentary flinty and smoky notes linger in the background providing a complex balance to the primary fruit. The wine is juicy and mouth filling with vibrant ripe fruit. A fresh line of balanced acidity supports the soft, round texture."


Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Distinctive bouquet with aromas of mineral oyster shell, citrus fruits and freshly harvested green herbs. There’s a saline air and wild flower seam and some exotic fruits along with apple and heirloom peach. Really fantastic on the palate with flavours that mirror the bouquet amplified and intense. Bold acid line and a leesy vibrant mouthfeel. Well made and totally delicious with best drinking from 2022 through 2028."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"This classic wine offers a clear style contrast to Section 94, Dog Point's complex, barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc (see the Branded and Other White Wines section). Hand-picked at several sites in the Wairau Valley, it is lees-aged in tanks but handled without oak. The classy 2019 vintage is highly aromatic, weighty and sweet-fruited, with intense, ripely herbaceous flavours and a crisp, dry, very long finish. Best drinking mid-2020+. Certified organic."


94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, March 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"It has some richness of tropical fruit, but tang of grapefruit and gooseberry too, slight spice of cut green capsicum, though ripeness of fruit is the main theme. It has intensity and crunchy, a quartz-y texture in with a light creamy silkiness, and the finish is tight, flinty and long, and very passionfruity, leaving just a little smokiness in its wake. Flavour and precision. Seems to be a very good vintage for this wine."


17/20 JancisRobinson.com (2019 Vintage)
"Very slightly reductive, struck-match nose and extra-bright fruit with strong passionfruit aromas and a certain amount of delicacy. Chalky finish. Lots of interest here. Very youthful and energetic indeed. Complimenti!"


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2018 Vintage)
"Low yielding vines have produced a wine with ripe, concentrated tree fruit/nectarine, red capsicum and guava flavours. A rich, gently tangy and deliciously accessible wine that stood out from the crowd in a tasting of 2018 wines."

  • 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.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
