James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2022)
Nettles, thyme, green apples and grapefruit on the nose. Medium-bodied, sharp and clean cut with a refreshing core of citrus and green fruit. Vivid. From organically grown grapes.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2022)
A focused, precise expression of Sauvignon Blanc, with makrut lime leaf aromatics, notes of fresh lemon sorbet and a touch of fresh ginger. Ends with plenty of lime zest details on the mouthwatering finish, where a note of orange blossom lingers.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 93 Points (2021)
Crisp, dry and concentrated sauvignon blanc with nectarine, guava, salty-mineral, capsicum and lemongrass flavours. A serious sauvignon with intensity, length and a backbone of peppery phenolics. (9/2021)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2021)
Unlike most Marlborough Sauvignons, the 2021 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc is cropped low and hand-harvested in a bid to increase concentration and restraint, respectively. This is a Scrappy Doo of a wine with its youthful “lemme at 'em” vivacity. It has masses of dissolved CO2, clearly visible on pouring, which provides a slight crackle in the mouth. The wine is citrus-driven, with lemon and lime meeting pineapple and more subtle details of jasmine, green herbs and flint. The finish is powerful and intense, potentially due to the naturally low yields of 2021 adding that extra punch. I'd like to leave this another six months to allow Scrappy Doo to calm down, although I suspect it'll be put on wine lists and sold before then. (RG) (1/2022)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2021)
Like two flint rocks striking one another, there’s a smoky, sulfuric aroma that mingles with toasted nut and oyster shell. More delicate fruit (pithy lime) and floral aromas arrive after some time in glass. There’s a textural richness to the palate. It’s sliced by razor-edged acidity. Crunchy and citrusy with length and poise, this manages to be delicate and bold all at once. It’s a divisive style but one that enormously rewards time and food.

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.

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.

Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2022
"Luscious honeysuckle, ripe pear and fresh lemongrass intertwine in this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Hints of fresh tropical grapefruit complement the subtle mineral quality while added layers of fig and honeysuckle round out this crisp, aromatic wine." - Randy Ullom, Winemaster

The Grand Vin Chardonnay displays a wonderful slightly straw colour. The nose displays vibrant citrus, lime zest, hints of apple with underlying minerality and vanilla butterscotch. The palate has a fantastic balance, minerality and fruit expression with richness coming through

Named after an ancient heliotherapy centre (Colonia), the Colonia vineyard was the result of a difficult replanting project begun in 1966 and completed only 1993. The very rocky soil of this vineyard is full of iron and magnesium which give it a typical red colour.
