Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc

Ivan Sutherland and James Healy were the driving force at Cloudy Bay, before they started Dog Point in 2004. They wanted to remain of a size where they could control all aspects of wine
making. And still today, they are a leading producer of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2016 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc delivers intense lime and nectarine fruit on the palate. It avoids the grassiness and sweetness of many of the more industrially produced Sauvignon Blancs of the region. The mouthfeel is quite full and satisfying. What sets this wine apart other than the fruit profile is the drive and energy of the wine assisted by balanced acidity. There are leafy notes on the finish.

Score: 91/+
