Dog Point, Marlborough (New Zealand) Sauvignon Blanc 2019

($21, Vintus):  New Zealand is known around the world as a top producer of distinctive Sauvignon Blanc.  And Dog Point has rapidly become one of the best producers of Sauvignon Blanc in that country.  Their 2019 is stunningly good.  It’s vibrant without being over the top.  Its bite is electric, but not outrageous.  It combines a wonderful texture with an alluring grapefruit-like subtle bitter fruitiness.  Take-out Chinese or sushi, let me introduce you to 2019 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc.  It’s also an ideal choice if you’re grilling fish yourself.
