New Zealand — Marlborough • $24.95 • 90/100

Dog Point continues to produce stunningly good Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. The wine is pale straw, with a slightly reductive, smoky, mineral and sweaty attack, that eventually allows delicate green apple and grapefruit notes to edge through. Brilliant acidity drives the palate, helping the grapefruit-apple flavours rise to the fore as the reductive elements recede into a flinty, grapefruit-tinged finish. While this is more mainstream Marlborough than their lovely barrel-fermented offering, it will nevertheless stand far above the crowd. A terrific wine. • Tasted 2017-04-01 • LCBO id#677450 • Find it at your nearest LCBOTRIALTO WINE GROUP LTD. (Agent)
