Review: Two Boutique Wines from Vintage Point

Vintage Point imports small production wines and sells them for cheap. Turns out they’re not doing a bad job of it. Here’s a look at two of the company’s new U.S. releases.

2011 Makara Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough – Distinct mango and pineapple notes, with a juicy, fruit-heavy body. Reasonably acidic, but could use a little more subtlety in the somewhat flabby finish. B / $13

2011 Mountain Door Malbec Mendoza – Lively, fruity, surprising for a Malbec. Food friendly, with plenty of herbs, black and red fruit, and a lively finish. A great value. B+ / $10

    Nice find. I have avoided them in the past. I’ll have to give them a try.
