Very racy, alluring, complex nose with some reductive struck-match character. Rather splits the difference between Marlborough and Sancerre. Creamy undertow with exciting top notes. Extraordinary tension on the palate. Dry but not drying finish. Long. Very accomplished and intense.
True to the Dog Point house style, this atypical sauvignon impresses with its intriguing flinty, sulphide-driven profile, of evidently above average intensity and depth. The palate has a very appealing salinity, excellent depth and length, with everything nicely proportioned. Drink or hold; decant if drinking now. Best 2018-2024.
