Description

The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district. Dog Point Vineyard combines the considerable wine-growing experience of Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy. The philosophy is total involvement from them from the vineyard through to the winemaking process to marketing distinctive and vineyard expressive wines. Marlborough's Wairau Valley is the major grape growing region of New Zealand, a confined geographical area at the northern tip of the South Island. Abundant sunshine, low rainfall and cool autumn nights characterise the long growing season, enabling the slow evolution of a rich array of vibrant fruit flavours. Fruit for the wines is sourced from selected vineyard plantings dating bakc to the late 1970's. These older well-established vines situation on free draining silty clay loams are supplemented with fruit from closely planted hillside vines with a clay loam influence. This wine gives refreshingly intense concentration of citrus, tropical fruits and fragrant fresh summer herbs with an appealing degree of minerality on the nose. It is a generous full bodied wine on the palate displaying an excellent balance of fruit and acidity with a fine citrus infused finish. Perfect with seasfood, salads, white meats and mild cheeses.
