Oz Wine Review 2019 “Part of the secret to this label’s success is the Dog Point Vineyard itself, which is one of the oldest privately owned vineyards in Marlborough. Planted by Ivan and Margaret Sutherland back in the late 1970s, it remains not only the backbone of the Dog Point label but also a key source of fruit for a whole swathe of premium Marlborough producers.”
The Real Review "The 2016 Dog Point Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has achieved cult status for its barrel ferment, yeast lees and mineral/reductive characters, which elevate it above the normally fruit-forward Marlborough styles. I gave the wine 95 points."
Michael Cooper "The classy 2016 vintage (5 stars) is highly scented, very fresh and vibrant. Weighty, it has searching, ripe grapefruit/lime flavours, firm acid spine and a dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. Highly concentrated and tightly structured, it's a very harmonious wine, arguably the best vintage yet."
Wine Spectator "The crisp lime and grapefruit notes are lively and juicy up front, set on a fleshy body. Becomes more complex on the finish, with honeysuckle details and a whiff of green tea."
The Real Review "Dog Point Vineyard; one of Marlborough’s brightest stars."
Bob Campbell "A small family owned, boutique winery located in Marlborough, New Zealand – New Zealand’s premium wine growing region. Dog Point Vineyards produce wines that respect the natural integrity of the land from which they are made and, reflect the experience and passion of the people that make them."
It was an exciting day for wine lovers when Cloudy Bay's former viticulturalist and winemaker Ivan Sutherland and James Healy decided to go out on their own. The vineyards were some of the earliest to be planted in Marlborough and thus have some of the oldest vines in the region. Dog Point is named for the sheep-herding history of the area.
Organic philosophies drive Dog Point's approach to wine growing and in March 2012, 150 hectares of Vineyards were certified organic by BioGro New Zealand, with another 60 hectares certified as C1 (2 years in conversion).
A flock of around 2,000 sheep including Romney, Perendale Cross and Merino Wiltshire Cross are grazed in the winter to keep the grass low and fertilise as they go.
After pruning; all the prunings, any grass or cover crops are mulched and added to the compost heap. This is spread under the vines to help conserve moisture and improve soil structure. A mob of 25 steers are also grazed on the property.
