Lime, grapefruit pith and gooseberry with a deliciously tangy sort of acidity, it’s a textural and moreish wine. I struggle a bit with the touch of rubbery reduction on the nose (though this is tame by Dog Point standards) but it dissipates fairly quickly and in any event is obscured by the sheer crunchy deliciousness of the palate. The dry, lengthy finish is spot on. A beautifully rendered example of vivid Marlborough fruit reeled back in a clever, ever so slightly feral manner.
Concentrated sauvignon blanc in quite a ripe style with nectarine, stone fruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and red capsicum flavours. Very appealing and quite textural wine with good weight and a lengthy finish. A class act.
