Hand-picked, 100% whole bunch pressed, Wild ferment, totally unfiltered, aged in French oak puncheons in the Sancerre style. This is an artisinal wine of extraordinary purity. and finesse. 94 Points “Oak fermented and matured sauvignon blanc that's as much about texture as it is about grapefruit, guava, struck flint, mineral and passionfruit flavours. An impressive wine with power and purity." Bob Campbell MW, Real Reviews. 13/5/2019
Bob Campbell 95 points (equal top rating for Sauvignon Blanc) This single vineyard rendition of Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the Holdaway Family vineyard at Dillons Point – our favourite sub region for the variety. It is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, being 100% tank fermented, but it offers complexity of texture and a mineral drive that summons river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit are captured alongside the subtlest hint of oyster-shell. This wine is focused and explosive on both nose and palate yet remains elegantly balanced and distinctly salty.
This is the 34th vintage of New Zealand’s iconic Sauvignon Blanc. Brilliant water like colour with a distinctive tinge of green to the edgings. Uplifted gooseberry, passionfruit and citrus aromas meld into fresh lime, herbaceous grassy characters and subtle asparagus notes. Intense ripe gooseberry, passionfruit and citrus flavours line the palate with elements of grassy asparagus characters and fresh herbs also apparent. Dry crisp finish. Excellent persistence with a lingering aftertaste of ripe gooseberries, citrus, passionfruit, lime and herbaceous grassy characters.
WA93 JS92 BC95. An iconic wine from New Zealand's most iconic winery. Atypical for Kiwi Sauvignon, the Te Koko is fermented using indigenous 'wild' yeasts, and subjected to batonnage as it ages in oak. Released as a three year old wine, this is unlike anything else from New Zealand! Lychees and almonds with classic gooseberry notes and a hint of wood smoke. A full bodied palate of citrus fruits with the richer flavours of caramel and nougat, leading to a crisp yet spicy finish. Able to age for up to ten years, this wine is an ideal partner to tuna, oysters and poached fish.

97 Points Stuart McCloskey "Dog Point's Section 94 has always been a favourite of mine and can, in correct cellaring conditions, mature wonderfully over a decade. This is another example of a medium to full-bodied, textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes for Section 94 come from a single, low cropping vineyard parcel first planted in 1992. The fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Every vintage has a funky edge which you either love or not. Those seeking simplistic Kiwi fruit pops should avoid at all costs as this is a serious, large scale wine that deserves a little respect. The...
Light golden in colour, this Sauvignon Blanc is rich, creamy and textural. It possesses ripe fruit flavours - a luscious mix of tropical and stone fruits - and balanced perfectly with fruit-laden acidity. 93 Points - Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) Barrel fermented sauvignon blanc with citrus, grapefruit, nectarine, stone fruit, toast and biscuit flavours. Quite a weighty, textural wine, with reasonably soft acidity. 94 Points - Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier) Varietal Sauvignon Blanc greets the nose with a sweet herb and angelica leaf tease. Golden Kiwifruit, apple and grapefruit follow close behind. No mistaking the sweet sweaty lift of...
Raymond Chan Wine Reviews. “Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, very light edged. The nose is very elegant in proportion with fresh aromas of passionfruit with soft notes of fresh herbs, snow peas and cut grass. Dry to taste, the palate has a vibrant and zesty heart of passionfruit, cut grass and fresh herb flavours. The mouthfeel is refreshing and bright with fresh acidity and a core that flows along a fine-textured line. This has good linearity, and the wine carries to a lingering finish of passionfruit, herbs and grass. This is a lively and bright passionfruit, herb and cut-grass flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with fine textures and good...
Sam Kim Wine Orbit 91 points. Brightly fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows nectarine, rockmelon, green apple and lemon peel characters, leading to a lively palate that is succulent and flavoursome. The wine offers excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, finishing long and very tasty.
