- Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #30582 (In Stock)
Another great vintage for this benchmark New Zealand winery founded by Cloudy Bay alums.
"Sexy musky aromas of white peach, ginger and quinine. Ripe, broad stone fruit and spice flavors display more body than most Marlborough Sauvignons while maintaining a captivating piquancy. Really dusts the palate and carries on the aftertaste. Delivers an impressive combination of sweet fruit and salty finishing grip. There's nothing tart or austere about this compelling Sauvignon Blanc. (Incidentally, the 2008 vintage of this wine is à point today: pliant and plush, with concentrated flavors of candied citrus fruits, peach and gingery spices nicely framed by a firm spine of alcohol and acidity. The 2005 version is more peppery and herbaceous, less about fruit but still full of life.)" Vinous (Tanzer) 92 points
"The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has a fragrant nose of elderflower, lavender, lemongrass and fresh herbs with hints of struck match and ground stones. Medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture and great intensity, it has a lively acid backbone and long savory finish."Wine Advocate 90 points
