Dog Point ‘Section 94′ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Nov-2014
Light straw-yellow colour with a little gold. The nose is soft and broad, quite even and mellow, a tad shy, but with depth, showing yellow capsicums with oak and spice interest. Broad on palate with soft layers of complexing flavours of yellow stonefruits, spicy herbs and capsicums, and subtle flint notes. The mouthfeel is soft, rounded and mellow, but with an underlying line of acidity. Gentle, mellow and yellow. Drinking well. 14.0% alc., 1.6 g/L RS, 18 months in older French oak. 18.0/20 Oct 2014 RRP $N/A Wild yeast fermented to 14.0% alc. and 1.6 g/L rs, and aged 18 months in seasoned French oak with no MLF. This is bright, pale green-lemon in colour, and has a tight, penetrating nose of ripe nectarines, gooseberries and spiced herbs, the oaking subtle and nuanced. Dry, firmly concentrated and tight, the drive and vibrancy of the nectarine, citrus, herb and spice fruit flavours are enhanced by bright, racy acidity. This has a purity of fruit focus, and very fine textures provide a linearity, leading to a long, cutting finish. This should keep for another 3-4+ years.  19.0/20 Feb 2012  RRP $37.99
