Natalie's Score: 94/100

A vibrant and terrific sauvignon blanc from a master of the genre! Lively aromas of lime and citrus and just the right amount of herbal refreshment. Mouth-watering and juicy. It's medium-bodied and packed with flavour. Some guava and grapefruit on the clean, crisp finish. Highly recommended.

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

Reviews and Ratings

If you buy no other 2012 New Zealand sauvignon currently on the shelves, don’t miss Dog Point. There’s a consummately crafted dimension to this … a wine of genuine character and interest. A one-fifth portion of wild ferment and lees ageing instills a mineral mouth feel and complex nuances of struck flint. Carefully regulated yields have produced an impeccably gauged fruit profile … grapefruit, lemon zest, guava and golden delicious apple. A focused acid line and outstanding, lingering, textural persistence make not only for immediate appeal but promise medium-term potential. Drink 2012-2019. Score: 95.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
