  • Tyson Stelzer says:

    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.

    Wine Companion says:

    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.

    Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says:

    There is an ever-widening chasm between “those” Marlborough sauvignons and the select few that strive for an inherent sophistication and a calm sense of control. Thanks to low cropping, hand picking, whole bunch pressing, a portion of natural ferment and fanatical attention to every molecule, Dog Point ranks among the most reliable of the latter set. This is exemplified in 2011 by a palate that pulls into tightly focused granny smith apple and grapefruit flavours, with a grapefruit pith texture.

    Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says:

    One of the more restrained Marlborough savvies, this shies away from the overt tropical territory and into melons, apple, grapefruit and white peach. There's an innate sense of balance and focus in this wine that shines out from the pack. Sauvignon with class.
