2012 Dog Point Vineyard, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough

( £12.95, 13.5%, Berry Bros & Rudd, The Wine Society )

As good as ever, this textbook Marlborough Sauvignon has more depth and layers than most local examples, combining grapefruit and guava fruit with pithy acidity and notes of green herbs, green pepper and zing. These Sauvignons age surprisingly well, too.
