Winery & Vintage Info

Dog Point's version of the classic dry aromatic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense with deliciously refreshing saline acidity. The wine calls for simple fresh seafood but can also be enjoyed as a pre-dinner aperitif with or without social distancing. One of the best vintages the region has experienced in years.

A mild spring after a wet winter in 2022 gave the vines a good start to growth. Bud-burst timing occurred around average from early September with only a few minor frost events occurring after that. Flowering in November was during a period of cool and grey conditions which managed to produce a respectable yield. December continued with drizzly weather, meaning an exceptionally large amount of work was required to maintain healthy fruit into January. March and April returned to more settled, drier conditions, giving the vines a chance to ripen in beautiful conditions, with our classic, cool overnight temperatures and sunny days.

Hand picked and whole bunch pressing of fruit prior to cold settling then fermentation. 60% of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 4 months in stainless steel tanks then bottled without fining.
