Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 2015      
Sku: 17571

Dog Point Vineyard is a partnership between two Cloudy Bay alumni, enologist James Healy and viticulturalist Ivan Sutherland. The estate vineyards are among the oldest in Marlborough's Wairau Valley, with some dating back to the 1970s. The vines are planted on free draining silty clay loams. The winemaking is non-interventionist, and all the wines (with the exception of the Sauvignon Blanc) are given extended barrel aging with minimal racking and handling. Bottling is done without fining and with minimal filtration.

Tasting notes
Fresh and intensely concentrated, this wine can be enjoyed young or cellared for several years.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 2015)
The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has a fragrant nose of elderflower, lavender, lemongrass and fresh herbs with hints of struck match and ground stones. Medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture and great intensity, it has a lively acid backbone and long savory finish.

Technical notes
Grown on clay soils in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. This soil profile yields a wine with more defined citrus characteristics than the more common gravel soils. Hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed, and then fermented in stainless steel.
