DOG POINT VINEYARD Sauvignon Blanc 2017

See the wine detail page

91 Points

Dog Point is made in a more reductive, almost Burgundian style that gives this kiwi sauvignon a different perspective from its Marlborough peers. The nose is a moody, smoky, mix of juicy lime and lemongrass that spreads across the palate with medium weight and a very creamy texture. The finish is equally beguiling with a touch of nettle, yeast and minerality. Food friendly if you can wait for the food to get to the table.
