2014 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc "Section 94"
Marlborough, New Zealand

When you smell this wine, you will think you are wandering in a citrus grove in bloom, and the flavors are equally lovely. Quite full-bodied, with lots of mineral and citrus flavors all rounded and enriched by the extended time on lees and in barrel.

Winemaker's Notes
"On the nose, fruit aromas, ripe citrus, white peach, lemongrass, combed honey. On the palate, white blossom, underlying yeast influence. Savoury herbs, chalky minerality, racy acid, lingering long finish. Pairs well with fish, poultry, vegetable dishes, and aromatic white cheeses especially."

Technical Notes
"Aged 18 months in older French oak barrels. Cellar 3-5 years. 13.5% alc."
Vinous
"91 pts ... Bright, light yellow. Sexy leesy funkiness to the aromas of ripe peach, fresh herbs and stony minerality, plus a touch of lemon peel with air. Quite dry and tactile, with penetrating, distinctly saline mineral acidity currently keeping the wine's primary fruit flavors under wraps; still some undissolved CO2. A fascinating extract-rich Sauvignon, at once fine-grained, salty and very long. Strong minerality and lemony cut reminded me a bit of Burgundy. Extremely young wine with terrific inner-mouth tension. and a superb tactile, rising finish. Not at all about fruit in the early going."
