DOG POINT VINEYARD

15 December 2014 News

An article in The Standard, “When Dogged Determination Meets Kiwi Craftsmanship,” goes into detail about Dog Point’s offerings and the estate’s production process.  The Marlborough estate has celebrated ten years of wine releases in 2014 with wine tastings around the world.  Of note is Dog Point’s Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc.  Owner James Healy explains, “Our Section 94 does have a habit of dividing wine lovers and probably the single feature that does this is the flinty character that the wine displays.  It is the result of the soils found in Section 94 combined with the wild yeast ferment that we use to make the wine.  It is a personality trait that can vary in intensity from year to year and is something that is found in Chardonnay from some producers in Burgundy and a few in the New World as well, but it does take people by surprise when they find it in Sauvignon Blanc!”
