The Wine Front – Struck match, preserved lemon, pine-lime, aniseed, cashew and spice. It’s glossy, with a bit of parmesan rind savouriness, bright grapefruity acidiy, creamy cashew, excellent intensity, and a flinty yet rich finish of excellent length.
World Wine – "Intense, mouthwatering chardonnay with lime, pineapple, oyster shell/mineral, hazelnut and subtle spicy oak flavours. Delicious high-energy wine in a rather Chablis-esque style with purity and power." - 96pts, Bob Campbell MW
James Suckling – Inviting aromas of flint, matchstick, grated nutmeg, dried lemon rind and sliced grapefruit. Medium-bodied with silky texture. Fresh and bright fruit turns more savory with herbs and spice coming to the forefront. Layered. Tannic, tight finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
About This Wine
Ranked #1 of 55 x 2020 Chardonnay from Marlborough
This Chardonnay is yet another great example of why the Dog Point boys receive accolades worldwide for their winemaking prowess. It’s packed with bold aromas of white and yellow stone fruits entwined with citrus, nuts and minerals. Couple that with complex smoky, toasty and oak vanillin characters alongside creamy barrel-ferment layers, and you have one very refined Chardonnay.
Pale straw in colour.
Gunflint, smoke and gravelly tones sit alongside the citrus core of fruit flavours. The extended barrel ageing of 18 months shows with nutty flavours and creamy texture
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.
I love it so much I’m ordering another case. It is sensational
Great balance and length
This was on the menu when President Trump was invited to dinner at Buckingham Palace, and, if you like Chardonnay (pretty much unoaked), then you can understand why.
