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 (2021 Vintage)
"This classic wine offers a clear style contrast to Section 94, Dog Point's complex, barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc. Hand-picked at several sites in the Wairau Valley, it is lees-aged in tanks but handled without oak. The classy 2021 vintage is a bright, light lemon/green, vigorous, full-bodied wine, with intense, vibrant, tropical fruit flavours, a herbaceous undercurrent, and a crisp, dry, lasting finish. A wine with a powerful presence, it's benchmark stuff. Certified organic."

    5 star review  Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.
