A grassy, herbal Sauvignon Blanc with zesty acidity on the palate. Aromas of white grapefruit and lime. Pair with salads. Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 offers lots of refreshment.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: Masala salad, saffron potato cakes, spinach and watercress salad with raspberry dressing.

Reviews and Ratings

James Marentette rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

Everything you said and major petroleum, crude oil scent. The best yet
Andrea Shapiro, Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon-green colour with long thick teardrops. This was a pretty interesting Sauve Blanc from NZ Marlborough region. Lots of lemon, cut grass, straw, grapefruit, honeysuckle, tart pear, orange blossom and a hint of butter. This one also has an interesting sulphury burnt match element. Lots of lovely lemon, smoke, grapefruit, green apple and white pepper. High acidity with a medium minus body and finish. Dry 4g/L smooth, tart and zingy. Pair with herbed goat cheese, tabouleh and rosemary chicken. 91 points - tased April 2017
From South Island New Zealand, Dog Point (2016) is a flinty, smoky Sauvignon Blanc with mouth watering white grapefruit, melon and lime flavours. Great food wine with a bracing acidity to cut through any rich, creamy dishes. Drink now and for the next couple of years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
