Dog Point's version of the classic dry aromatic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense with deliciously refreshing saline acidity. The wine calls for simple fresh seafood but can also be enjoyed as a pre-dinner aperitif
Colour: Pale straw
Bouquet: A lifted and perfumed Sauvignon Blanc with strong citrus characteristics leading into ripe tropical tones. Complimentary flinty and smoky notes linger in the background providing a complex balance to the primary fruit.
Palate: The wine is juicy and mouth-filling with vibrant ripe fruit. A fresh line of balanced acidity supports the soft, round texture.
Food match: Fresh, simple seafood dishes especially oysters. Also compliments goat's cheese well.
