Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Pale, bright yellow. Tangerine and spice aromas lifted by a floral suggestion of honeysuckle. Supple, round and sweet, with rich, generous soft citrus flavors offering juicy appeal. Doesn't have quite the penetration or grip for an even higher rating, but this full-flavored sauvignon makes for a very satisfying drink.
The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc has a vivacious, grassy nose, clean and crisp with zesty green lemon. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with light apple and gooseberry flavors coming through. Again, just that hint of green lemon with nice poise on the natural finish. Very well crafted and should drink well over 2-3 years.
Light and tart, with pear and lime flavors to light up the flavor profile as the finish lingers nicely.

Shepherds' dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off and eventually bred into a marauding pack which attacked local flocks.
Their home was a tussock and scrub covered hill, overlooking the Wairau Plains, designated by the early settlers as Dog Point.
