FIVE STARS | Michael Cooper
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.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Fabulous bouquet and palate with aromas of fresh peach and gun-flint minerality, new and used barrel with a nutty cashew complexity, baked apple and quince. Delicious, fresh and dry with a satin touch, back bone of acidity and flavours of barrel, flint, mineral and oak. Fine tannins, a lengthy finish and delicious complexity. Best drinking from is from late 2023 through 2029."
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."
