Description

Dog Point is fortunate to have access to some of Marlborough's most esteemed and mature Sauvignon vineyards, mainly thanks to veteran viticulturist Ivan Sutherland. Winemaker James Healy has pushed the Dog Point style to the limit, embracing wild fermentation and struck-match reductive notes in pursuit of texture on the palate. As a result, it's best with a little air time, revealing its ample fruit weight through a long, concentrated palate with a fresh, lingering finish.

Smells

Gunsmoke, flint, guava, mango and passionfruit. Amazingly complex.

Tastes

Very mouth-filling and fleshy with a big, mineral kick in the middle, the finish lingers with a flinty, oyster shell minerality. A serious Sauvignon that needs a little air to show its best, it will be great with oysters natural.
