Wine Tasting Note: Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc, 2006, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Available from Surf4Wine [more] for £11.95.
Another delicious, crisp, vibrant, punchy Marlborough Sauvignon. Medium-bodied and full of lime and grapefruit flavours. A lovely minerality adds much to the texture and, with a twist of lime and peach on the finish has plenty of flavour complexity. Alcohol 13.5%.
Scribblings Rating – 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]
Dog Point is home to one of New Zealand’s cultural and ecological treasures, ‘ti kouka’, commonly known as the cabbage tree. This attractive, distinctive, hardy native New Zealand plant is an aesthetic feature of the Dog Point landscape [pictured on the label]. Its remarkable natural qualities and strong signature of geographical identity have a synergy with the wines of Dog Point, which are a natural expression of the land from which they are created.”
