This is classic Dog Point Pinot. The winemaking team have excelled themselves again and delivered a svelte and supple wine with plenty of cherry and spice flavours in the glass. There is plenty of weight here; a fulsome wine with rounded mouthfeel and excellent palate drive. Another stand out release that reinforces Dog Point's reputation as one of Marlborough's best producers.
The winery writes "A bright perfumed, supple expression of Marlborough pinot noir from clay hill slopes. The fruit is supported by bright florals of rose and violets with crunchy red berry fruit and dried herb notes. The palate is succulent with alluring red cherry, brown spices and silky fine boned tannins. This wine has all the makings of a long lived Marlborough pinot noir and matches perfectly with duck, red meats (particularly venison and lamb), and mushroom dishes."
