"Dillons Point" Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014
There are masses of passion fruit and nectarine along with herbal nuances and racy acidity.
Again, in 2014, we have crafted our ‘Dillons Point’ Sauvignon Blanc using fruit from Alan and Petrina Shutkowski’s vineyard in Morgans Road, mid-way between the Eastern outskirts of Blenheim and the shores of Cloudy Bay. There are small supporting roles played by some other vineyards also. As always, the ferment was conducted in stainless using yeasts that we know to be capable of amplifying Sauvignon Blanc’s irresistible aromas and flavours. Wines from ‘Dillons Point’ always have an incredible depth of flavour, persistence and longevity.
As always, this wine is almost water white at bottling. As the wine ages, it will pick up pale green and gold tints.
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at full throttle! There is masses of passionfruit and nectarine along with herbal nuances and a touch of sweat for complexity.
This wine is full bodied for a Sauvignon Blanc. It retains the typical racy acidity of the variety, but also has mid palate richness and loads of sweet fruit on the finish.
Best drunk while young and fresh. The wine will probably cellar very well but the flavours and aromas will change over time.
Young Sauvignon Blanc is a very refreshing aperitif. It is also a great accompaniment to seafood dishes, especially mussels, oysters and squid.

Independent Reviewer’s Comment
“Delicious now, the 2014 vintage is mouthfilling, with generous, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, a slightly 'salty' note, and a lingering finish.” Michael Cooper
