Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2016
100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the Wairau Valley sub-region of Marlborough. Meticulous viticultural practices include low cropping and hand-harvesting.
A premium style combining the winemaker's experience and passion with old world philosophies and new world technologies. Maturation for 18 months in older French oak barrels give a distinctive character, along with excellent ageability.
Pure focused fruit aromas of ripe citrus, white peach, a pleasant fragrance of white blossom. An underlying yeast influence is attained from a naturally occurring fermentation in old oak barrels for a period of 18 months. A complex full-bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc with a chalky minerality and fresh herbal influence, complimented by a slightly funky reductive edge.
