Two cracking Marlborough Sauvignons

These are two lovely Kiwi Sauvignons from the 2012 vintage. Both are from the Wine Society, and while they are priced above the entry level, the fact that the entry level for domaine bottled Marlborough Sauvignon is creeping up to £10 makes them both excellent value. The Dog Point is pretty much my perfect Sauvignon Blanc.

Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Marlborough, New Zealand
13.5% alcohol. Amazingly fresh, precise and aromatic. Powerful grapefruit, citrus and passion fruit aromas. Really focused and precise with intensity and amazing freshness. Zingy, mineral and almost Riesling like. Brilliant. 93/100 (£12.50 The Wine Society)

Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Marlborough, New Zealand
13% alcohol. Really full flavoured. Chalky, grapey, green pepper and passionfruit. Concentrated and rich with some sweet melon notes. There’s also herb and citrus character. Very intense and exotic, and also quite green, in a showy style. Archetypal Marlborough Sauvignon. 91/100 (£14.50 The Wine Society)
