This focus is expertly partnered with a low interventionist ethos. Fruit is hand-picked from low cropped, estate grown vines, then hand crafted with great care to produce fine wines that are accessible and enjoyable with cellaring potential.
Ageability of Dog Point wines is demonstrated by James Suckling's review of an older Dog Point wine below; adding weight the approach taken by Ivan and James to ensure low cropping, hand harvesting and careful pressing assists greatly in the ageability of Dog Point wines.
"This is powerful and rich with a reserve and tension. Full and layered with beautiful dried fruits and a bright acidity. Dried apricots and lemons. Lots going on. Loving it. Turns to aniseed and dried lemons." James Suckling on Dog Point's 2004 Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc, jamessuckling.com, December 2012.
