Description

95/100 for 9 of the last 10 vintages from Bob... we’re going one better with a 96/100 for this spectacular 2020 release. Dog Point have access to some of Marlborough's most esteemed, proven and mature Sauvignon vineyards, mainly thanks to veteran viticulturist Ivan Sutherland and his family ownership of the outstanding 100ha Dog Point Estate established in the late 1970’s. Winemaker James Healy pushed the Dog Point style to the limit, embracing wild fermentation and struck-match reductive notes in pursuit of texture and complexity... considerably increasing the dimension and sophistication of our traditionally fruit driven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. As a result, it delivers much more pleasure and intrigue in the glass... further heightened as the air opens the wine more fully, revealing its ample fruit weight through a long, concentrated palate with a fresh, lingering finish. There is a new and exciting Marlborough Savvy style evolving moving away from simple, primary fruit focused wines to wines with exuberant texture, balance and complexity, and Dog Point is leading the way. It’s so encouraging to see wineries like Dog Point moving NZ into a new exciting World of Wine production.

Smells

Intense grapefruit, ripe gooseberries and mandarin peel with enticing, subtle burnt match and flinty aromas.

Tastes

What a wonderful presence in the mouth, combining texture, complex layers of citrus, gooseberry and fresh lime embraced by salivating acidity adding to its superb length and energy. There so many layers in this wine that keep you pondering, and a second sip is impossible to resist. The stone-sucking after-taste/texture lingers forever and if this is the new Marlborough Savvy style, then give us more of it. It will drink beautifully from day one but will evolve brilliantly through 2025+
