Heiner Lobenberg über:
Sauvignon Blanc 2021


Lobenberg: Ein Standard Sauvignon Blanc mit Stachelbeere und Gras ist in meinen Augen langweilig. Und genau darum bin ich so begeistert vom Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc. So geht Sauvignon Blanc. Saftig mit frischer Säure, gefolgt von einer weichen und runden Textur. Passionsfrucht, Limette und duftige Melone, begleitet von getrockneten Kräutern. Das ist eine Art weißer Burgunder von der Loire mit einer sagenhaften und cremigen, frischen Finesse. 93/100


Galloni über: Sauvignon Blanc

-- Galloni: Unlike most Marlborough Sauvignons, the 2021 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc is cropped low and hand-harvested in a bid to increase concentration and restraint, respectively. This is a Scrappy Doo of a wine with its youthful “lemme at 'em” vivacity. It has masses of dissolved CO2, clearly visible on pouring, which provides a slight crackle in the mouth. The wine is citrus-driven, with lemon and lime meeting pineapple and more subtle details of jasmine, green herbs and flint. The finish is powerful and intense, potentially due to the naturally low yields of 2021 adding that extra punch. I'd like to leave this another six months to allow Scrappy Doo to calm down, although I suspect it'll be put on wine lists and sold before then. 92/100

Weingut über: Sauvignon Blanc

-- Weingut: Handpicked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before fermentation. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 4 months in stainless steel tanks then bottled without fining. Pale straw. Bright, fresh, citrus characters predominate with subtle, riper tones of tropical fruit as well as jasmine and orange blossom details in the background. A crunchy palate bursting with pure grapefruit with juicy tropical fruit, saline texture and crisp, refreshing acidity. The low yields have meant generous concentration and a lengthy finish.

Buchstäblich in letzter Sekunde hatte ich 2017 – nach mehr als drei Jahren konsequenter Belagerung – endlich dieses Weingut ins Programm nehmen können. Nie gab es genug Menge.
