Dog Point's Ivan Sutherland and James Healy, the former chief viticulturalist (Sutherland) and oenologist (Healy) at Marlborough's renowned Cloudy Bay, are two of New Zealand's most influential winegrowers.

An intriguing bouqet with restrained citrus notes, exotic fruits and floral tones. The palate shows nutty flavours with nice weight and texture. Pair this wine with fish (salmon), poultry and soft white cheeses.

There's much at play here, it has a hazelnutty edge on the nose with flinty, restrained and dialled back citrusy fruit presence, minerally and stony, dried flowers too, clever wine.
