Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2014

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.

Winemaker's Comments

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.

    FQ LIFE REVIEW - Joelle Thompson (A Case of the Best / New-Wave Marlborough):
    "This is a Sauvignon Blanc, not as we know it. Winemakers James Healy and Ivan Sutherland add creamy bells and whistles to this wine by fermenting their Sauvignon grapes in oak barrels to soften savvy’s crisp green flavours - rather than adding a wood-derived taste. The result is an addictively tasty new take on Marlborough savvy."
