    Produced by ex-Cloudy Bay dudes James Healy and Ivan Sutherland. They were partly responsible for producing Cloudy Bay’s world class “Te Koko” oak aged Sauvy back in the day. They took their know-how to their own Dog Point label in producing Section 94.

    This is no ordinary Marlborough Sauvy – it’s oak aged for 18 months in old French Oak barrels using wild yeasts, it’s a full bodied style full of texture and it’s downright amazing. If you haven’t been converted to the oak aged Sauvy movement yet, now’s the time and this is the wine!

    It comes with a big international reputation and never fails to impress. The Wine Advocate’s Lisa Perotti-Brown was into this vintage big time, scoring it 94/100 and calling it “A barrel-fermented, no holds-barred style of Sauvignon Blanc…Wow – this vintage is firing on all cylinders and should age beautifully over the next 5-7+ years”

    While most Sauvy is made to drink now this is a wine of class that you could comfortably tuck away in the cellar for several years yet. We recommend grabbing a few bottles to open up along the way – just watch it evolve!

    The Dog Point boys recommend fish, poultry or aromatic cheese dishes for the best food matches.
