Dog Point Sauvignon '12
The winemakers behind Dog Point Vineyard worked at the wine giants Cloudy Bay. Their new venture, the aforementioned Dog Point Vineyard in Marlborough, combines their experience to create wines that can certainly compete with Cloudy Bay's expressions.
Their Dog Point vintage 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is a classic bit of New Zealand winemaking. Heavenly notes of grapefruit, guava and basil on the nose, supported by a subtle minerality. On the palate, the Sauvignon Blanc is juicy and crisp with a fresh acidity that is well balanced by sweet fruits.
