Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Wairau New Zealand
The wines of Dog Point are a natural expression of the land whence they originate. Fruit is sourced off choice blocks dating back to the late 1970s. These older well established sites are a neighbour of the first commercial vineyard in Marlborough, established by Montana in 1973. Section 94 is a special bottling from a single superior block which produces a distinctly flavoured wine, attenuated to please those who would prefer not to drink a lychee flavoured, grass and gooseberry, Marlborough fruit bomb.

Section 94 is vinified from Sauvignon Blanc grown to a specific area of the estate's vineyard. Section 94 dates back to an early survey of Marlborough, particularly the subdivision of the vast Hawkesbury Run, which at that time encompassed an area of 6878 acres, seven roods and five perches. Wine from this vineyard exhibits distinctive yellow fruit characters, completely oak fermented and treated to an extended term of lees contact, a wine of amazing textural richness and considerable length of flavour. Section 94 is Sauvignon Blanc with a difference, a luxurious eighteen months maturation in a selection of seasoned French oak barriques.
Straw green colour. Intense yellow fruits and aromatic nuances of white flowers are integrated by a degree of minerality against a background of lees complexity. Unique full bodied Sauvignon Blanc with considerable depth and complexity. The intense citrus and mineral flavours are complemented by a chalky textural lees influence resulting in a wine with concentration, focused structure and individuality.
