A ripe, citrus driven Chardonnay. Characteristic biscuit and oatmeal secondary characters and mild flinty notes contrast and compliment the fruit. 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. Intense, concentrated and complex.

Bob Campbell MW

(2015 vintage) Concentrated chardonnay with grapefruit, struck flint, mineral, hazelnut, brioche and spicy oak flavours. Youthful wine that’s approachable now and offers cellaring potential. A very classy wine indeed, with subtle complexity and underlying power.

(2015 vintage) Dog Point has delivered yet another very classy chardonnay, which is no surprise given the quality of the 2015 vintage. Complex and powerful wine with grapefruit, struck flint/mineral, hazelnut, brioche and spicy oak flavours. Will age, but why wait?
