Cracka Rating
Appearance: Straw green.

Nose: Fresh, intensely concentrated aromas of tropical fruits infused with ripe citrus notes, complemented by lifted hints of lemongrass and passionfruit.

Palate: Fine texture and acidity, a degree of minerality and a lasting, refreshingly crisp finish.

Food: White meats, pale cheeses and seafood - especially scallops and oysters.

As ever, Dog Point makes a point of being different, and the struck match bouquet with hints of tropical fruits and fresh-cut grass are very alluring, the palate is energetic and lively, with a nice bit of sauvignon grip to clean up the finish, which will have you asking for more, an excellent example of the style.

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 wine that propels it above the vast sea of sauvignon, a wine of genuine character and interest. A one-fifth portion of wild ferment and lees ageing instils a mineral mouth feel and complexing nuances of struck flint. Carefully regulated yields have produced an impeccably gauged fruit profile that tactically dodges the extremes of underripe herbaceousness and overripe passionfruit, falling neatly into the middle ground of 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.
