Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018 - Late Release


Bewertung Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018Oz Clarke: 97/100. Putting New Zealand’s most astute vineyard expert together with one of the country’s best winemakers was always going to work. And so it has proved. Since 2004 Dog Point have released a cavalcade of enticing wines, sometimes re-defining what was possible in Marlborough. Section 94 is such a wine. Not many people make a success of this barrel-fermented and -aged style, but in the tricky 2018 vintage this is a triumph. Intriguing pink apple and grainy peach skin fruit seems to be sprinkled with summer country meadow dust, and wrapped in a bone-dry fudge of toasted hazelnuts, crips black chocolate and Kenya coffee beans. Super winemaking from one of New Zealand’s greats.


Bewertung Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018Decanter: 96/100. Roger Jones: The nose tells you everything – delicate perfume with crisp white stone fruit, delicate herbaceous notes, clean precise citrus. Classic. Freddy Bulmer: Fairly mellow nose showing some nice development, though still a fresh and vibrant wine. Creamy and smart, lovely texture, good palate weight, delicious sweet spices. Cat Lomax: Hazelnut, savoury toast, hints of spice with a little struck match. Punch, depth, rounded citrus, dried mango, hazelnut. Creamy texture, fresh and lifted. Drinking Window: 2024 - 2034.


Bewertung Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018Bob Campbell, MW (The Real Review): 96/100 (Sept 2023). Intense, oak - matured sauvignon blanc with lemongrass, oyster shell, ginger, spicy oak and nutty yeast lees flavours. Bright, complex and satisfying wine that takes Marlborough sauvignon to a different level.


Bewertung Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018Cameron Douglas MS: 96/100 (Sept. 2023) & Top Wines Tasted 2023 Fantastic bouquet with a complexity and pungency, a varietal signature of ripe grapefruit and fresh herb, there’s a mineral and smokiness then aromas of peach and cape gooseberry, apple and moments of tropical fruits. On the palate a fine satin texture touches first then flavours of gooseberry and citrus, peach and apple, and a distinctive complexity from barrel fermentation and wild ferment aromas of wild flowers. The backbone of acidity deposits flavours and mineral throughout the palate as well as mouthfeel and youthful tension. Well made, complex and lengthy. In short a delicious wine and excellent SB expression. Best drinking from day of purchase through 2028+.


Bewertung Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator: 94/100 (Dez. 2020). Fragrant, intense and succulent, with distinctive honeysuckle, chamomile, spicy marmalade and ripe peach flavors on a fleshy frame, showing a touch of lanolin. Notes of mango, mineral and candied ginger emerge on the finish.

Bewertung Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc 2018Michael Cooper: This ranks among the country's greatest oak-aged Sauvignon Blancs.


Tasting Note

Pale straw in colour. Warm and ripe fruit spectrum of citrus, mango and white peach with complex barrel fermentation characters of toast, biscuits and smoky, flinty, reductive characters typical of Section 94. On the palate creamy and round upfront with a crisp and focussed finish.
