A classic dry aromatic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense with deliciously refreshing saline acidity. The wine calls for simple fresh seafood but can also be enjoyed as a pre-dinner aperitif. One of the best vintages the region has experienced in years. Drinks beautifully now or can comfortably be cellared for five years or more. Handpicked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before fermentation. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 4 months in stainless steel tanks then bottled without fining. Hand harvested grapes.
Food Pairing: seafood, smoked salmon, salads, poultry
Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan
Dog Point is one of the oldest privately established vineyards in Marlborough with first plantings in the late 1970s. It was established by partners, Ivan & Margaret Sutherland, and James & Wendy Healy. After working together at Cloudy Bay, Ivan and James decided to return to a more hands-on approach and establish their own wine label. They produce wines that reflect the experience and passion of the people that make them.
Dog Point is New Zealand’s largest Biogro certified organic vineyard. Dog Point Vineyard and winery are certified organic under the Biogro New Zealand programme, which is an independent certification process established to promote environmentally friendly, sustainable and responsible practices. These organic philosophies drive their approach to wine making and help ensure the vines are their best for next year’s harvest. All their wines are vegan, gluten free, and vegetarian friendly.
