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.
Ripe aromas of grapefruit and lemons with overt white floral characters in the forefront. The hint of struck match aromas characteristic of this wine, reflect the use of solids during fermentation and ageing, adding a dimension of complexity and interest. Displays vibrant, varietal Sauvignon qualities, with citrus, racy fresh acidity and after 18 months of ageing on lees, creamy textures and a toasty, nutty finish. Pairs well with fish (especially Salmon), poultry and soft white cheeses.
Dog Point founders James Healy and Ivan Sutherland met while working for one of New Zealand's most successful labels, Cloudy Bay, where they were winemaker and viticulturist, respectively. In 2002, the two left Cloudy Bay and started their own, Dog Point winery. By exploring different winemaking techniques and grape sources, they find themselves once again on the vanguard of New Zealand wine, leading a movement of producers who want to coax more elegance and refinement out of their grapes, as well as make more age-worthy bottlings.
Located in Marlborough, New Zealand's premium wine growing region, Dog Point Vineyards produce wines that respect the natural integrity of the land from which they are made and, reflect the experience and passion of the people that make them.
