Gorgeous Marlborough Chardonnay from a highly respected winemaking team. This is a powerfully fruited release with some funky gun smoke characters on the nose, fresh minerality on the palate and wonderful palate drive. All class. Enjoy over the next 5 years.
Stylish and flinty on the nose, with whiffs of gunsmoke and toast mingling with citrus, grapefruit and yellow stonefruit. Beautifully balanced and clean on the entry, the lovely biscuity, creamy palate chimes in with a variety of stonefruits and toasted nut characters. Incredibly complex and layered, with many elements yet to unfurl, it will be at its best now through to 2028.
The winery writes "A pure, bright and youthful citrus driven chardonnay with complex smokey, flint, toast and biscuit notes derived from extended barrel aging on full solids. The hallmarks of Dog Point chardonnay are ever present here with pure saline and crisp palate structure. This vintage will have the ability to age well. Perfect match with scallops, white fish, poultry and BBQ pork."
