Community Tasting Notes 7

    December 28, 2018 - Much better than my last bottle. Still hugely reductive and a nose that is dominated by gunsmoke, even after triple-decanting. But intriguing lemon fruit, olives, and super-concentration, just about cuts through the nose.

  • G_Talbot Likes this wine:

    November 9, 2018 - Very Good, but challenging to rate.

    Clear, pale lemon with legs.
    Clean, developing, pronounced herbaceous nose of green capsicum, buttered popcorn, yeasty bread, lime and seaweed.
    Dry, medium acid, medium (+) alcohol (14% - but it holds it well). Medium (+) body, medium (+) intensity lemon, lemongrass, vanillin oak and ginger. Medium (+) length.

    Very good, certainly for a fume blanc style, oak so well integrated, but still confused about how this knits together. Truly stumped by the aging potential of this wine, it could improve, but I worry about the primary fruit.

    Cork.

    August 16, 2018 - Tons of sulphur and flint on the nose. Sulphur is almost off putting but not quite and is very persistent even on day two. Good acidity with a rounded mouthfeel. Very interesting and very moreish in an oddly intriguing way. Day two was very different - some sherry notes but also more sweetness coming through.

  • empire80 Does not like this wine:

    August 12, 2017 - Very different to "standard" Dog Point - very non-standard sauv blanc, and very dominated by a strong stink of sulphur, which only improved after several double-decants.

    May 10, 2017 - Exhausting. About the most reductive wine I think I've ever tried, massively pungent and vegetal, a confronting, and I think exciting, wine. No boring Marlborough Sauvignon, this.
