Winemaker Notes

The Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc shows aromas of ripe tropical fruits, ripecitrus, melon, tangerine on the nose. Textural on the palate, with juicy acidity, minerality, and a refreshing lemon/lime infused finish.

This wine pairs well with white meats, pale cheeses, seafood especially scallops and oysters.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling

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.

D 90
Decanter

Peppery, earthy aromas and green apple, kiwi fruit and passion fruit flavors. Refreshing acidity with a rounded mouthfeel in a well-proportioned wine.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

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.

Dog Point  Vineyard, , New Zealand
Dog Point Vineyard
The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district. "These were days of few fences, of boundary riders and boundary keeping dogs".

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.

A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley is responsible for a wide range of wine styles both red and white. The warm and welcoming appellation is home to a number of family-owned vineyards and wineries that place a strong emphasis on sustainable farming practices. One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days bookended by cool nights allow grapes to reach full ripeness while retaining acidity and balance.

[Zinfandel] reigns supreme here, often grown on vines aged 35 to 100 or older, taking on a powerful, voluptuous character favored by fans of the variety. Sauvignon Blanc, the valley’s signature white grape, also performs exceptionally well. Many other varieties grow comfortably here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Rhône varieties, and Italian varieties. [Petite Sirah] and [Carignan] are commonly blended with Zinfandel.
