Wine tasting notes

Straw green. Aromatic white flowers, ripe citrus and minerally sauvignon fruit together with intense yeast character derived from extended lees contact. The full bodied palate has a refined complexity enhanced by intense mineral and citrus flavours.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018) - 87 pts

While I'm an unabashed fan of the style, Dog Point's 2018 Section 94 (100% Sauvignon Blanc, barrel fermented and matured in oak) comes across as a wan shadow of the best vintages. It hints at smoke and grilled citrus on the nose, but it lacks power, flavor and amplitude on the medium-bodied palate, finishing with spare white grapefruit notes. Like the 2018 Pinot Noir, it's still an attractive wine for current consumption, but it lacks the depth and concentration to age well beyond the next few years.


James Suckling (2018) - 94 pts

The complex style is nicely dialed-in here, offering a fresh array of grilled lemon and peach with some gently nutty aromas, as well as a lime-curd edge. Really fresh. The palate has fleshy and smooth texture with praline-like flavors sitting in a fresh citrus and peach core. Drink now. Screw cap.
