    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2011 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc is a straw green color, with a fresh, intensely concentrated aromas of tropical fruits infused with ripe citrus notes, complemented by lifted hints of lemongrass and passionfruit. It has a fine texture and acidity, with a degree of minerality and a lasting, refreshingly crisp finish on the palate. This wine is a perfect match with white meats, pale cheeses and seafood (especially oysters and scallops).

    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex on the nose and richly textured in the mouth, this wine delivers it all. Hints of struck flint and wild onion accent grapefruit aromas, while the flavors range easily from pink grapefruit and red currant to delicate herb shadings. It’s full without being too full, with a potent yet refreshing finish that seemingly lingers forever.

    Wine Enthusiast

    The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc gives notes of pink grapefruit, apples and orange blossoms with suggestions of sulphides and ginger. The medium-bodied palate lends a pleasant touch of silkiness to the texture, with crisp acid supporting the elegant fruit, and finishing long.

    Enough difference and quality to make it a welcome change from all the other Marlborough SBlancs we've had. And we've had a lot.

    A lot of life. Complex and interesting Surprising nose, a little stinky you can definitely smell the earth. I agree with Wine Enthusiast that it is full but not too big. As a cocktail it fills the palate, think it would colide a little with spice. It paired nicely in terms of weight with grilled chicken. Would not think I would go that well with with Oysters, something ligher and more acidic. Finish is strong but welcomed.

    Good typical sauvignon blanc with grassy and grapefruit notes and a smooth finish.

    I am just getting reacquainted with whites and this one was a good one to get started with! Floral and fruity aroma (I don't know where the other reviewer got 'earth'). Dry, not too dry and just the right amount of sweet. Strong pear aroma. I think this would go great with a fruit and cheese plate and I think it would be awesome with blue cheese and pears!

    Nice green notes, fairly balanced. Pleasant going down, very drinkable & no complaints, just not outstanding.

    The worst NZ Sauv Blanc I've ever had. Not enough fruit in this wine! It's crisp but with relatively little citrus for Marlborough. There are some vegetal components -- the review that mentioned wild onions is correct -- but that's not what I'm looking for in a Sauv Blanc from NZ. My father and I each took two sips and agreed to dump the rest.

    I did not enjoy this wine. I paired it with turkey. The grapefruit aroma is too strong, and of course it's the dominant flavor in the wine. If you like grapefruit, you should try this one.
