A brilliant Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc


One of my favourite New Zealand Sauvignons: Dog Point. In the 2013. Such a super wine, representing the best of Marlborough typicity, I reckon.

Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough, New Zealand
Beatifully aromatic with a slightly smoky edge to the delicate, crisp, grapefruit and green pepper nose, which has a hint of chalk and floral passionfruit. Very fine and restrained on the palate with nice weight and precision. It’s very Marlborough in style, but it’s grown-up sophisticated Marlborough. 93/100 (UK retail c £15, agent FMV)

  • I can’t wait to try this. I, like many have become very bored with NZ Sauvignon but every now and then there is a one that really impresses and the last few Dog Point vintages I’ve tried have hit the mark.

    try the section 94 dog point, very good and a bit different.
