Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2013
This wine pairs well with white meats, pale cheeses, seafood especially scallops and oysters.
A terrific base-level wine from these masterful sauvignon makers, this has a neat, flinty edge, ahead of fresh, fleshy, tropical and lime fruit, with some grapefruit. The palate has bright, composed and tangy lime citrus flavor and great balance. Crisp and tidy.
This vintage of Dog Point is unabashedly green without being overwhelming so. There’s plenty of fig and melon fruit to provide support for the garlands of cut grass, tomato leaf and fresh herbs. The texture, as usual from this venture, is silky, while the finish is long and vibrant.
Peppery, earthy aromas and green apple, kiwi fruit and passion fruit flavors. Refreshing acidity with a rounded mouthfeel in a well-proportioned wine.

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.
