Quick Overview

Joelle Thomson


This is a sauvignon blanc, not as we know it. Winemakers James Healy and Ivan Sutherland add creamy bells and whistles to this wine by fermenting their sauvignon grapes in oak barrels to soften savvy’s crisp green flavours – rather than adding a wood-derived taste. The result is an addictively tasty new take on Marlborough savvy.

Fashion Quarterly Life, July 2016

Lisa Perrotti-Brown 94 Points


A barrel-fermented, no holds-barred style of Sauvignon Blanc, the 2014 Section 94 delivers honeyed peaches, lemon tart and pink grapefruit on the nose with hints of struck match (sulfides), lightly browned toast and yeast extract. The palate is wonderfully intense with a gorgeous, creamy texture and tons of flavor layers, finishing long. Wow – this vintage is firing on all cylinders and should age beautifully over the next 5-7+ years.

Wine Advocate, December 2016


Michael Cooper


Looking for 'texture, rather than rich aromatics', Dog Point fermented and lees-aged its 2014 vintage Sauvignon Blanc for 18 months in seasoned French oak casks. Hand-harvested in the Dog Point Vineyard (for which 'Section 94' was the original survey title), at the confluence of the Brancott and Omaka valleys, and fermented with indigenous yeasts, it has an invitingly fragrant, complex bouquet. Light lemon/green, it is a very nonherbaceous style, mouthfilling and fleshy, with vibrant, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, slightly toasty notes adding complexity, fresh, appetising but moderate acidity (the lowest to date for this wine), and a bone-dry, harmonious finish. Best drinking mid-2017+
