Meet the wines of Dog Point – an outstanding, award winning range from New Zealand’s Marlborough region. In 2004 Ivan Sutherland and James Sealy decided to take the skills they’d learnt as viticulturalist and winemaker at Cloudy Bay and set up on their own. They had a head start as Ivan had planted vineyards in Marlborough back in the 1970s. Dog Point remains very much owned by the two families – a boutique winery aiming firmly for high quality wines, produced as naturally as possible. Using indigenous yeasts and hand picked fruit, the wine is meticulously made, spending 18 months in French oak barrels, while Burgundian methods of batonnage and ‘malo’ in barrel lend creamy complexity. Let it breathe and serve with seafood or whites meats.

"One of the top chardonnay wines in New Zealand. A fancy racing car of a wine" Mike Bennie
