Dog Point - Chardonnay

Tasting notes

92 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Chardonnay is an underrated variety in Marlborough, but few do it as well there as Dog Point. The 2017 Chardonnay offers up refined aromas of toasted hazelnuts and cashews alongside grilled white peaches and pineapple. A bit brasher in the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and boldly flavored, finishing with lingering citrus flavors of tangerine and grapefruit." - Joe Czerwinski

    Dog Point

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Marlborough is blessed with one of the sunniest and driest climates in New Zealand. With easterly sea breezes and a long autumn, this region provides the perfect conditions for long slow ripening fruit. Home to New Zealand’s best Sauvignon Blanc and home to Dog Point.

    Ivan Sutherland and James Healy, the former chief viticulturist and head winemaker of Cloudy Bay, began Dog point in 2002. As owners they have an incredible hands on approach to their wines - from in the vineyard, handpicking the grapes, to carrying out all the winery work. They apply old world philosophies and new world technology to produce wines true to their region.

    “Our philosophy is to produce regionally distinctive wines that will drink well now and age gracefully for many years.” James Healy, Winemaker
