Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Nov-2014
Pale straw colour. The nose is soft, broad and voluminous, with excellent depth and presence. An amalgam of green stonefruits, spices and complex flinty reduction. A lovely sweetness and richness of fruit features on palate, this has good body, weight and phenolic textures and backbone. There is power and drive, alongside excellent acid liveliness. The fruit sweetness is enhanced by the acidity on finish. This combines power with complexity. 13.5% alc., 2.6 g/L RS. 19.0+/20 Oct 2014 RRP $24.50 Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. This has a very densely concentrated nose with interwoven layers of green stonefruits, citrus, herbs and flinty lees complexities that open in volume. Dry to taste and medium bodied, concentrated and well-packed flavours of herbs, stonefruits, citrus and minerals show with lovely richness, energy and tension. The fruit forms a fine, dry, textural line with lively underlying acidity and the flavours are tightly bound and flow with great drive. The flavours reveal layers of interest and detail and carry through to a very firm, long and sustained, dry finish with herbs and mineral nuances. This is a concentrated and complex Sauvignon Blanc with excellent tension and layers of stonefruit and minerally flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel, 20% by indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 60 days on lees. 18.5+/20 Oct 2013 RRP $24.50
