It was an exciting day for wine lovers when Cloudy Bay’s former viticulturalist and winemaker Ivan Sutherland and James Healy decided to go out on their own. This is their brilliantly aromatic Sauvignon, with bright gooseberry and mineral complexity.
"Complex take on fruit-driven sauvignon style with fresh limes and lemons, as well as peaches"
James Suckling Critic
Meet Dog Point – an outstanding, award winning range of wines from New Zealand’s Marlborough region. In 2004 Ivan Sutherland and James Sealy decided to take the skills they’d learnt as viticulturalist and winemaker at Cloudy Bay and set up on their own. They had a head start as Ivan had planted vineyards in Marlborough back in the 1970s. Dog Point remains very much owned by the two families – a boutique winery aiming firmly for high quality wines, produced as naturally as possible. Using hand picked, low yield grapes, the wine is meticulously made and hugely expressive of the Sauvignon varietal as well as of the terroir of the Wairau Valley. No stranger to awards, this is a white to chill down and savour with seafood or spicy Asian dishes.
