From some of the oldest plantings in Marlborough. These well established vines, situated on free draining silty clay loams, are vinified alongside fruit from closely planted hillside vines with a clay loam influence. The majority of the crop is hand picked and loaded directly into presses. Juices are inoculated with pure and indigenous yeast strains, all batches are fermented in French oak barrels, a proportion of which were new, most of the wine completes malolactic. Components are assembled after eighteen months maturation, the assembled wine is treated to a further term on yeast lees, followed by a light fining for clarification before the final bottling.
 
Straw gold hues. Ripe citrus aromas, minerality, hints of roasted nuts and toast, savouryness from extended contact on yeast lees. Seamlessly integrated oak leads into a wonderfully balanced, richly full bodied palate of ripe citrus flavours, nuts and fig over a chalky textural yeast complexity, a stylish wine with balance and length. The textural palate resolves on a slaty, mineral edge.

The name Dog Point dates from the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district

These were days of few fences, of boundary riders and boundary keeping dogs. Shepherd's dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off and eventually bred into a marauding pack which attacked local flocks. These delinquent canines would retreat to a tussock and scrub covered hill which they inhabited, overlooking the Wairau Plains, designated by the early settlers as Dog Point.

Dog Point

The Dog Point region is home to one of New Zealands cultural and ecological treasures, 'ti kouka', commonly known as the cabbage tree. This attractive, distinctive, hardy native New Zealand plant is an aesthetic feature of the Dog Point landscape. Its remarkable natural qualities and strong signature of geographical identity have a synergy with the wines of Dog Point, which are a natural expression of the land from which they are created.

James Healey and Ivan Sutherland did not leap head first into Dog Point Vineyards and they did not try and expand too quickly at their winery which is best described, Sutherland says, as the bare bones of a building with the best equipment money can buy. In their previous incarnations as winemaker (Healey) and viticulturist (Sutherland) at Cloudy Bay Wines, they learned exactly what money could buy so they figured out what they needed.

They had also secured markets before they began bottling, relying on contacts made over the years in Australia, Britain and the United States. One of the keys to the success of Dog Point Vineyards lies in the vineyard itself, they employ 14 fulltime workers to attend to the pampering needed by their close-planted, low-cropped vines. And though they are producing only 8000 cases a year, they own 80ha of vines and keep up with maintenance costs by selling a substantial proportion of grapes to Cloudy Bay Wines.
