Cellar Release of this Iconic wine
A fuller bodied, textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. This single vineyard parcel is situated within the Dog Point Vineyard, using the same low cropping level from vines planted in 1992. Fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled without fining.


Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Pale straw in colour. Pure focused fruit aromas of ripe citrus, white peach, a pleasant fragrance of white blossom. An underlying yeast influence is attained from a naturally occurring fermentation in old oak barrels for a period of 18 months. A complex full bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc with a chalky minerality and fresh herbal influence, complimented by a slightly funky reductive edge."


5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, December 2020 (2014 Vintage)
"Tantalising sauvignon blanc made from grapes grown on 29-year-old vines and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Taut, savoury wine with chalky-mineral, struck-flint reductive characters and nut, ginger yeast lees supported by vibrant acidity. A harmonious wine from a top vintage. Should continue to age gracefully."


Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2020 (2014 Vintage)
"Distinctive, complex, developing, enticing. Aromas of integration, white fleshed fruits and citrus, a mix of primary and developing bottle-age complexity. On the palate – immediately fruity with barrel ferment combinations – grapefruit and lemon, apple and lees autolysis. The back palate shows-off the gentle vanilla and custard sweetness of oak. Still fresh and youthful with medium+ acidity and lengthy detailed finish. A fantastic wine. Best drinking from today and through 2026+."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Looking for ‘texture, rather than rich aromatics’, Dog Point fermented and lees-aged its 2014 vintage Sauvignon Blanc for 18 months in seasoned French oak casks. Hand-harvested in the Dog Point Vineyard (for which ‘Section 94’ was the original survey title), at the confluence of the Brancott and Omaka valleys, and fermented with indigenous yeasts, it has an invitingly fragrant, complex bouquet. Light lemon/green, it is a very non-herbaceous style, mouthfilling and fleshy, with vibrant, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, slightly toasty notes adding complexity, fresh, appetising but moderate acidity (the lowest to date for this wine), and a bone-dry, harmonious finish. Best drinking mid-2017+."


95/100 James Suckling (2014 Vintage)
"There's much at play here, it has a hazelnutty edge on the nose with flinty, restrained and dialled back citrusy fruit presence, minerally and stony, dried flowers too, clever wine. The palate has a level of weight and texture more associated with Chablis, very long, piercing, focused and glossy tight-wrapped fruit here. Great."


94/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage)
"A barrel-fermented, no-holds-barred style of Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Section 94 delivers honeyed peaches, lemon tart and pink grapefruit on the nose with hints of struck match (sulfides), lightly browned toast and yeast extract. The palate is wonderfully intense with a gorgeous, creamy texture and tons of flavor layers, finishing long. Wow–this vintage is firing on all cylinders and should age beautifully over the next 5-7+ years."


94/100 Jeb Dunnuck (2014 Vintage)
"A significant step up over the base Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Sect. 94 reminds me of a top-flight Bordeaux Blanc. White currants, citrus, white flowers, minerality and earthy mushroom-like nuances all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, concentrated and beautifully textured Sauvignon Blanc. Aged 18 months in oak with regular lees stirring, drink this rich, balanced, terrific white over the coming 4-5 years."

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 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.
