Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2020)
Dog Point's 2020 Sauvignon Blanc boasts explosively pungent scents of boxwood, passion fruit and grapefruit. A bit more sedate on the medium-bodied palate, the flavors skew more toward pineapple and grapefruit with touches of fig and nectarine. This shows ample concentration, a silky mouthfeel, bright citrusy flavors and good length. In sum, it's a fine example of classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2019)
Very vivid, fresh passion fruit, lemon, yellow grapefruit and lime here with well cut, flinty elements in play. Some herb and lime-leaf notes, too. The palate has fresh, lively and assertively zesty lime and passion-fruit flavors with a succulent, fleshy feel and big impact. Drink now.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2019)
Lovely weight on the midpalate, providing a feeling of sumptuousness. This was whole-bunch-pressed and hand-harvested, and neutral yeast was used (20% wild), which has created an air of restraint. Yes, there are classic passion fruit and gooseberry flavors, but the volume is turned down, and a citrus backbone offers a fresh, composed conclusion. Drinking window: 2020 - 2025

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2019)
There's a touch of salty reduction when this is first opened, but it quickly reveals aromas of citrus, peach, snow pea and white spice. The palate is slippery, with bright acidity and a crunch of snow pea and citrus freshness. It's a balanced example of a highly maritime influenced wine.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 95 Points (2018)
Intense, ripe Sauvignon Blanc with tree fruit, nectarine, red capsicum and guava flavours. A rich, gently tangy and deliciously accessible wine that stood out from the crowd in a tasting of 2018 wines. (5/2018)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2017)
An aromatic version, with intriguing beeswax, honeysuckle, lanolin and marmalade notes that give way to a smooth, lush core of apricot and lime zest flavors. Mouthwateringly smooth and juicy, showing appealing complexity. Drink now.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2017)
Very intense nose with massive extract and intensity. No sign of any 2017 problems here. Very Sancerre-like. Clean, fresh and super-refreshing. Very superior and unlike the Marlborough mainstream.

Casa Marin Sauvignon Blanc Cipreses Vineyard 2021
Casa Marin Sauvignon Blanc Cipreses Vineyard 2021
Notes of ocean breeze with elegant fragrances of slightly candied citrus, rhubarb and pink grapefruits and hints of green peppers, in which the minerality is a highlight. On the palate it is saline and juicy at the same time with a clear and elegant acidity which continues together with the long finish of this wine. This is a great example of a seductive and fine wine that can be enjoyed for drinking now, or in a few more years.

Jim Barry The McRae Wood Clare Valley Shiraz 2013
This Shiraz honors the vision of pioneer Clare Valley winemaker Jim Barry. In 1964, Jim purchased 70 acres of prime land from Duncan McRae Wood and planted his first vineyard with Shiraz. It was an inspired choice of both grape variety and location.
