Bouquet: A ripe, citrus driven Chardonnay. Characteristic biscuit and oatmeal secondary characters and mild flinty notes contrast and compliment the fruit. Palate: Our hallmark fresh, vibrant acidity offered by the Mendoza clone offers vitality and vibrancy. A modest amount of new oak delivering subtle char and phenolic structure to the wine. An intensely flavoured yet youthful and lively vintage for Dog Point Chardonnay. Food match: Scallops, white fish and BBQ Pork. Cellaring: Five to seven years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay is a smoky, toasty, medium to full-bodied effort marked by a terrific acid line. That grapefruit note provides the backbone over which riper notions of white peach, toasted hazelnut and pineapple rest. Zesty and refreshing, with a long, mouthwatering finish, this is a compelling example of Marlborough Chardonnay.

Wine SpectatorSupple and harmonious, offering a spicy, slightly smoky introduction to the notes of white flowers, lush peach, pear and grilled lemon. Crisp acidity keeps the flavors bright and fresh. The finish goes on forever. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
