PersonalisedÂ Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2015 13.5% 750ml
Dog Point is an icon of New Zealandâ€™s most famous wine region Marlborough. Renowned for making impeccable wines from hand-picked, estate grown fruit, this sauvignon blanc is a brilliant example of their handy work. Intense aromas of tropical fruits combine with mineral and green citrus notes and a touch of oak. The palate is full bodied and stacked with concentrated citrus fruit flavours. A great partner to fish, poultry and vegetable dishes, or with aromatic white cheeses. Can be cellared for 2+ years.
The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district. 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. Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and, James and Wendy Healy. Total involvement by the partners from the vineyard to the winemaking process through to the marketing of their regionally distinctive wines, ensures that Dog Point Vineyards remains a boutique and family oriented business producing wines with a clear point of difference.
