Back for the second year in a row in the highest category of the Viva Top 50 is Dog Point's flagship barrel-matured Section 94. One of the country's greatest sauvignon blancs, its 2012 release is another powerhouse of a wine with mouth-filling mango and papaya fruit; notes of herb, smoke, flint, a subtle toasty edge and racy grapefruit acid.More Reviews
