Dog Point is a collaboration between viticulturalist Ivan Sutherland and enologist James Healy, both long-term veterans of Cloudy Bay. Ivan purchased and began to plant this pristine Marlborough, NZ property in 1979, from which he and James now produce small quantities of hand-crafted wines from estate fruit grown on some of the oldest vines and best sites in Marlborough. Yields are low, the grapes are manually harvested, and wild yeasts are used to bottle unfined and unfiltered wines. Their debut vintage was 2002. Indeed, these vines provided the core of the original Cloudy Bay wines in the late 1980s.
"Light and tart, with pear and lime flavors to light up the flavor profile as the finish lingers nicely."
"The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc has a vivacious, grassy nose, clean and crisp with zesty green lemon. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with light apple and gooseberry flavors coming through. Again, just that hint of green lemon with nice poise on the natural finish. Very well crafted and should drink well over 2-3 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Pale, bright yellow. Tangerine and spice aromas lifted by a floral suggestion of honeysuckle. Supple, round and sweet, with rich, generous soft citrus flavors offering juicy appeal. Doesn't have quite the penetration or grip for an even higher rating, but this full-flavored sauvignon makes for a very satisfying drink."

Their home was a tussock and scrub covered hill,...Read More About Dog Point Vineyard
