New Zealand
Sauvignon Blanc
White Wine
A fuller bodied, textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. This single vineyard parcel is situated within the Dog Point Vineyard, using the same low cropping level from vines planted in 1992. Fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled without fining.

Wine Spectator Notes : Aromas of restrained funk, citrus notes, exotic fruits and floral tones. The palate is nutty. Solids give palate weight and texture. Ideally enjoyed as a young wine, may be cellared for several years.

Robert Parker Notes : A barrel-fermented, no holds-barred style of Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Section 94 delivers honeyed peaches, lemon tart and pink grapefruit on the nose with hints of struck match (sulfides), lightly browned toast and yeast extract. The palate is wonderfully intense with a gorgeous, creamy texture and tons of flavor layers, finishing long. Wow – this vintage is firing on all cylinders and should age beautifully over the next 5-7+ years.

Tasting Notes : Complex and vivid, with rye toast, lime marmalade and peppery white flower notes that are intense and succulent, with details of green tea and lemon verbena on a sleek, smooth and mouthwatering frame. Drink now.
