Not your average Marlborough sauvignon, this is another fine edition of Dog Point’s highly idiosyncratic version, complete with the customary, heavily flinty-smoky, sulphide-driven profile. But beyond that, you’ll find a substantial palate with genuine flavour density and intensity, ripeness and depth, evidence of careful farming and low yields.
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.
