    Grapes are hand-picked from eight of their vineyards within the stunning Wairau Valley. Always a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, wonderfully perfumed with strong citrus characteristics, subtle tropical tones, wonderful flinty notes linger providing a complex balance to the flavours. The wine is juicy and mouth filling with vibrant ripe fruit. A fresh line of balanced acidity and soft, round texture. Delicious.

    Producer

    All fruit is from hand-picked, low cropped vines grown under organic principles at Dog Point. They are, without question, one of our favourite New Zealand producers. A combination of stunning vineyards, meticulous organic farming and a brilliant wine-making team. Stunning wines across their range.

    A relatively new name on the Marlborough scene, but don't let that fool you - Dog Point's owners have years of experience in the region (with Cloudy Bay) and this label is much sought after. A refined and elegant Marlborough sauvignon, beautifully textured and with smooth tropical and cream layers.

    More complex sauvignon blanc. The nose has smoky hints, whispers of sulphide, and limey fruit. The palate is structured yet richly flavoured with lovely balance, ahead of a tight, lingering finish. Drink over three years.
