Established in 2004, Dog Point Vineyard is a joint adventure between the Sutherland and Healy family. Ivan Sutherland and James Healy met while working together at Cloudy Bay winery and with common aspirations they decided to branch out on their own to create their own label. Today, the duo and their trusted five dogs work on 80 hectares of land in Marlborough creating fresh, terroir driven wines. The name Dog Point comes from the European pioneers that settled in this specific area of Marlborough who introduced sheep in this district. With shepherds came roaming dogs protecting their sheep. The label of the bottle is adorned with the New Zealand native plant Ti Kouka, or cabbage tree, which are spread out throughout the property and across this region.

Marlborough is the largest wine growing region in New Zealand, boasting a sunny, dry climate with great proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Dog Point Vineyard’s 80 hectares consists of mostly silty clay loam that allows for great drainage for the flagship Sauvignon Blanc grapes. On the gentle hillsides, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are planted in mostly clay soils. While organic practices were at the forefront of vineyard management since the winery’s establishment, as of 2009, Dog Point Vineyards started the process of organic conversion. Today all vineyards and wines from Dog Point are certified organic.

The Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful expression of the classic Marlborough sipper. The wine is intensely aromatic, bursting with notes of grapefruit, citrus, hay, passion fruit, and a touch of minerality. The palate is structured and crisp, with a zippy acidity and plenty of citrus. Pure, refined and exciting, this wine is delicious with a mellow rounded finish. Pair with seafood or soft cheeses.
