Dog Point 2019 Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Aged and fermented in old oak barrels, this Sauvignon is quite flinty and reductive at first. It benefits from a short time in decanter or vigorous swirling in glass. Once aerated, gentle notes of honeycomb and lime popsicle float to the fore. Primarily, though, this is about the toasty oak and struck match characters. Despite a few years of age, the acidity is still lively, crunching through the textural creaminess. Drink with richer foods than you'd pair with your regular NZ SB. Christina Pickard
