ODT, NZ, July 2012

2010 Section 94

Not for the faint-hearted, this sauvignon is pungent, funky and complex from barrel fermentation with wild yeast. It hints of cape gooseberries and smoky passionfruit, melded with savoury and vegetal aromas and undertones. It has a firm dry structure and a long, juicy aftertaste. 4.5/5


Gismondi on Wine, Canada, May 2012

2010 Section 94

A more subtle version of the regular DP sauvignon with a pronounced, chalky minerality and a strong citrus undercurrent. The attack has a buttery, creamy lees underbelly with lemon and oyster liqueur notes throughout the finish. An intense, rich, complex white that steps out of the norm of most Marlborough Sauvignon. Unique, food-friendly and age worthy; need we say more. 91/100
