Dog Point’s Chardonnay has a dainty nose with white peach, honey, almond paste, ginger and zesty orange citrus, complemented by stuck-match complexity and fresh bread. Tight without being lean, this has delicious acidity and an intense citrus-driven palate. An intensely flavoured yet youthful and lively vintage for Dog Point Chardonnay. Pairs well with scallops, white fish and BBQ pork.
Dog Point founders James Healy and Ivan Sutherland met while working for one of New Zealand's most successful labels, Cloudy Bay, where they were winemaker and viticulturist, respectively. In 2002, the two left Cloudy Bay and started their own, Dog Point winery. By exploring different winemaking techniques and grape sources, they find themselves once again on the vanguard of New Zealand wine, leading a movement of producers who want to coax more elegance and refinement out of their grapes, as well as make more age-worthy bottlings.
Located in Marlborough, New Zealand's premium wine growing region, Dog Point Vineyards produce wines that respect the natural integrity of the land from which they are made and, reflect the experience and passion of the people that make them.
