Australian Ant Moore moved to Marlborough in 2002 to set up a winery from scratch. He planted vineyards, built a new winery and still looks after everything from tending the vines to blending the wines.
Doctors Point Sauvignon is sourced from a high-altitude vineyard overlooking the scenic Waihopai Valley. The grapes here benefit from a long, slow, flavour intensifying ripening period
“I'm not afraid to try new and different approaches and to push the boundaries. To me that's what making wine is all about…” Ant Moore, Winemaker
Ant’s ‘house style’ is typified by lemon and lime with clear minerality on the palate
Tasting note: Aromas of tropical island fruits, entwined with zesty lime, guava, peach and passion fruit. Make this lively fresh and easy drinking atypical style of Sauvignon Blanc from grapes grown in Marlborough.
