Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Vineyard combines the considerable winegrowing experience of Ivan Sutherland and James Healy, the former chief viticulturist and head winemaker at New Zealand’s Cloudy Bay.

Dog Point is situated in Marlborough, on the tip of New Zealand’s South New Zealand Wine

Once Dog Point was the name given by early European settlers to the rough patch of land where stray dogs gathered, forming an unruly pack.

Now it is both a wine label and a vineyard, set up by Ivan and Margaret Sutherland and James and Wendy Healy, after James and Ivan met working at Cloudy Bay, and it’s to Dog Point (run by another Cloudy Bay escapee, Kevin Judd), rather than Cloudy Bay, that those in the know would go for an upmarket sauvignon blanc fix.

The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district.

These were days of few fences, of boundary riders and “boundary keeping dogs”. Shepherds’ dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off and eventually bred into a marauding pack which attacked local flocks.

Their home was a tussock and scrub covered hill, overlooking the Wairau Plains, designated by the early settlers as Dog Point. http://www.dogpoint.co.nz/dog-point/

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.
