Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014
It’s such a stirringly aromatic wine, singing ‘Marlborough Sauv’ with a big, full and slightly sweaty nose of ripe fruit. Importantly, there a herbal edge too, a nod to what Marlborough Sauv should taste like, ie not all tropical fruit. Actually, there’s no tropicals at all, which makes this (arguably) even more enjoyable. A long palate, prominent acid and yet still with plenty to come.
Personally I’d prefer to drink this in another 6 months (and the 2013 is still a fraction better in my opinion), though no doubting that this is another supremely good Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from one of the benchmark wineries.
