Dog Point is one of the top wineries of New Zealand's Marlborough, founded by Cloudy Bay’s former viticulturalist and winemaker. Suckling called this fabulous 94-point Pinot Noir "complex and fragrant. Impressively intense." A delight now or age.
Beyond the Label
Rich mouthfilling berry and cherry fruit, silky tannins and freshness
Ripe cherry and berry aromas with black earth, herbal and spice hints
Dog Point is an outstanding, award winning winery in Marlborough. 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 way back in the 1970s. Dog Point remains very much family owned – a boutique winery unequivocally focused on high quality wines, produced as naturally as possible. Planted in 1983, the vines are some of the oldest Pinot Noir in the region and include six different clones. Using indigenous yeasts from hand picked fruit, the wine is meticulously made with 18 months' ageing in new French oak. Open early, let it breathe and serve with duck or mushroom ragoût.
"Impressively intense red-cherry flavors with succulent acidity and smooth, fluid tannins. Composed"
