Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Marlborough
Very enticing and fragrant bouquet with scents of white rose, white spice and wet pebbles with a flinty/organic layer. Grapefruit, lemon and apple emerge next. On the palate – palate grabbing youth with plenty of acidity and flavour – citrus, flowers, flint and white spice. A great example of SB with a few twists and turns ending in a lengthy finish. Drink now though best from 2018 through 2026.
Dog Point Vineyard Chardonnay 2015 Marlborough
Youthful, fragrant, varietal and no mistaking the impact of oak; aromas also of apple, lemon, cashew, wet stone, wood, baking spices and blossoms. On the palate – youthful, packed with flavour and texture; apple, grapefruit, cashew, white fleshed stone fruits, fine oak tannins and medium+ acidity. Great balance and length – a keeper. Drink from 2018/19 through 2028.
