This quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is right on point with its tropical fruitiness – think guava, melon, lemon and lime, herbal whiffs and talc-like mineral sweetness. It’s pure, racy and packed with juiciness. If you’re after a young, fresh, zesty Sauvignon Blanc with squeaky acidity, you’ve come to the right place. Dog Point delivers again.
Very slightly reductive, struck-match nose and extra-bright fruit with strong passionfruit aromas and a certain amount of delicacy. Chalky finish. Lots of interest here. Very youthful and energetic indeed. Complimenti! 17/20 Jancis Robinson, Feb 2020
It has some richness of tropical fruit, but tang of grapefruit and gooseberry too, slight spice of cut green capsicum, though ripeness of fruit is the main theme. It has intensity and crunchy, a quartz-y texture in with a light creamy silkiness, and the finish is tight, flinty and long, and very passionfruity, leaving just a little smokiness in its wake. Flavour and precision. Seems to be a very good vintage for this wine. 94 points – Gary Walsh, The Winefront
