Good Wine Guide 2013 names Section 94 top NZ Sauvignon Blanc

Dog Point Vineyards | 2012-11-28

We are thrilled that Nick Stock of the Good Wine Guide 2013 has named the Dog Point Vineyard Section 94 2010 the best NZ sauvignon blanc and given it 96 points.

Says Nick, "An outstanding Marlborough sauvignon blanc that shines a beacon of light on the possibilities for this world-famous white wine style to impress the most sophisticated palates. Immense complexity is the key to the nose; plenty of gunflint ahead of lime and lemon cistrus, some pink grapefruit here too. The palate's contained and powerful, harnessing ripe fruit flavour and layered textural flesh in a linear shape. Acidity surges through lemon custard and lightly grilled hazelnut flavours. Long and concentrated. 96/100"
