Dog Point Vineyard, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc


We have run out of stock for this item.

This is a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc and though it is more expensive than other options, you'll thank yourself (and us) for the very valuable steer. Full of complex flavours and layers of aromatic fruit, there is a texture and balance that you normally only find in top Loire Valley Sauvignon Blancs. Green apple, herb, blackcurrant leaf, grapefruit and lime notes with a lip-smacking finish.

The origin of fabled Marlborough success stories Cloudy Bay and Greywacke, the Dog Point farm belongs to two families (Healy and Sutherland) who have hand-picked these vines for over forty years.

Consistently one of the favourites in the wine trade because it is from these vines that the best New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs (and Pinot Noirs as it happens!) were always produced. But added to quality is the story of resilience: this is a property that has survived a massive take-over of the brand they once fed, the ups and downs of market forces and has met them all with continued optimism from the families who carry on their work irrespective of fashions and trends.

This is a wine made from really top-grade Sauvignon Blanc that has stood the test of time. It's not a new invented brand that sits on special offer to boost supermarket sales... It is worthy wine that is made in the same way as the finest of the Loire's appellations; it is a shiny, aromatic, textural, flavoursome and moreish wine that has more food-matching ability than any other New World Sauvignon that we've ever known, other than the three other wines made from the same vineyard's grapes!

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Michelle McM.
Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!
N. Dowling
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
