Description

  • Fresh citrus
  • Honeydew
  • Pear
  • Gala apples

"Intense, precise Sauvignon Blanc with grapefruit, citrus, subtle passionfruit and a suggestion of struck flint character. A powerful wine that's long and linear, with strong varietal definition that's made more interesting with a hint of reductive character" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Oct 2019

This wine displayes a pale straw colour in the glass, with bright, fresh, citrus driven aromas. There are aromatic elements of honeydew melon, pears and gala apples in the background. A very pure, yet restrained, classic sauvignon expression. The palate expresses a citrust core of flavours that are juicy and intense. Deliciously refreshing aline acidity and mellow rounded texture on the finish. 

A mild spring free of frosts was followed by a cool flowering period in December, which lead to tempered yields for much of the region. This was followed by an extremely dry and warm summer with only 10% of our typical rainfall for the months of January and February. A welcomed burst of rain fell during March, giving vitality to the vines, enabling a healthy and relaxed end to the growing season in early April. One of our earliest harvest completion dates, with all sauvignon being picked by the 4th of April. A very rewarding vintage for Dog Point.

Handpicked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before fermentation. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 4 months in stainless steel tanks then bottled without fining.

Food Pairing: The wine calls for fresh, simple seafood, but as usual, can be enjoyed on its own
