Reviews and Ratings

James Belardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2015
I'm a fan of big deep red wines but I must admit this Sauvignon Blanc is a welcome delight. It’s nice and bright with the perfect amount of sweetness. I usually appreciate white wines on the chilled side but this sauvignon blanc opens up nicely as it approaches room temperature.

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A Marlborough, NZ Sauv Blanc showing aromatics of grassy notes and tropical fruit. The palate gives citrus lemon, juicy tropical flavours and grassy elements. Extra-dry with long citrus finish.

This is the 2015 vintage of this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with lots of acidity on the palate. - Community Wine Review.

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.
