2016 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Wonderfully, delicately herbal on the nose with restrained gooseberry and tropical fruits on the palate. Always an elegant savvie, this vntage is also exuberantly dry and zippy. Terrific with goat or other cheeses and white meats with plenty of herbs.

"Fresh, intensely concentrated aromas of tropical fruits infused with ripe citrus notes, complemented by lifted hints of lemongrass and passionfruit. Excellent texture, with fine acidity, a degree of minerality and a lasting, refreshingly crisp finish. Pair with white meats, pale cheeses and seafood - especially scallops and oysters."
"5 Stars ... The classy 2016 vintage (5 stars) is highly scented, very fresh and vibrant. Weighty, it has searching, ripe grapefruit/lime flavours, firm acid spine and a dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. Highly concentrated and tightly structured, it's a very harmonious wine, arguably the best vintage yet."
