Section 94 pushes the boundaries of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. It's a full throttle, no holes barred, barrel fermented white from this terrific Marlborough winery. No surprise when it's run by two formerly at Cloudy Bay, Ivan Sutherland and James Sealy.

Meet Dog Point – an outstanding, award winning range of just four wines from New Zealand’s Marlborough. In 2004 Ivan Sutherland and James Healy 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 in the 1970s, and in just 12 years their wine label had became iconic. Dog Point remains very much owned by the two families – a boutique winery, producing outstanding quality, as naturally as possible. Using indigenous yeasts from hand picked fruit, this wine is meticulously made, with fermentation and ageing for 18 months in French oak. Open early to breathe and serve with creamy chicken or fish. Drink now, but no rush.
"Grilled lemon and peach with some gently nutty aromas, as well as a lime-curd edge. Really fresh"
James Suckling Critic, 94 Points
