Dog Point ‘Section 94′ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Nov-2014
Bright light golden-hued yellow colour. This has a more ‘traditional’ bouquet of oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc, the aromatics of fresh green stonefruits broad and voluminous with prominent toasty notes. Soft-textured, rich and densely concentrated, this has power and the palate drives positively, the oaking a feature, maybe a little too toasty now. Still with good acid vitality, the mouthfeel is beginning to round out. Complexing flint notes emerge and meld with the oak. The power defines this wine in the final analysis. Beginning to drink well now. 13.5% alc., 3.2 g/L RS, 18 months in older French oak. 19.0-/20 Oct 2014 RRP $N/A 13.5% alc. and 3.2 g/L rs, native yeast fermented in and given 18 months in seasoned French oak, lees work, but no MLF. Straw-yellow with golden hues, his has a truly funky, layered nose of tropical fruits, ripe gooseberries, herbs and smoke with minerals and nuts. The palate is piercingly intense, and shows immense concentration, but the componentry shows outstanding harmony and integration, and startling length. Ageworthy; keep for 3-5+ years.  19.0+/20 Mar 2011
