    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2012 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc has tempting aromas of tropical fruits, ripe citrus, lemongrass and guava combined with its fine texture, juicy acidity and a lingering crisp finish make this wine a perfect match with seafood, poultry, vegetable dishes and aromatic white cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Intensely scented of fresh grapefruit, passion fruit and green mango with an undercurrent of mown grass, asparagus and capsicum, the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is medium-bodied with a great concentration of both tropical and vegetal flavors, a lively line of acidity and a good, long finish. Drink it now to 2016.

    Very Loire nose of mineral and lemon rind with hints of grapefruit. Guava too. Wild fennel. Full to medium body with lovely fruit with a chalky texture. This comes from the 20% natural yeast fermentation. Fermented all in stainless. Bright and delicious.

    had this in a local chef/owned restaurant during a fundraiser for feeding homeless. Bright! Not quite as much grapefruit as typical from region.
