Description

“It will come as no surprise that the solo sauvignon inclusion in the NZ Top 100 is the top bottling from Dog Point Vineyard, their Section 94. In many ways, it is a wine that has more stylistic overlap with a top-flight chardonnay than it does with troppo sauvignon blanc, but that’s because they stand alone in pursuit of this razor-sharp style. With staggering complexity built into powerful, high-tensile fruit, it is a wine that shows the possibilities for extreme quality and style and one that delivers consistently.” James Suckling.com – 2017 Top 100 Wines of New Zealand

There’s much at play here. This has a hazelnut edge on the nose with flinty, restrained and dialled back citrusy fruit presence. Minerally and stony with dried flowers too. A clever wine. The palate has a level of weight and texture more associated with Chablis. Very long, piercing, focused and glossy tight-wrapped fruit here. Excellent. Drink now.” – 95 points/#34 – 2017 Top 100 Wines of New Zealand
