Dog Point chardonnay

Deep straw in colour.
Aroma A ripe citrus spectrum of fruit is at the core of a complex chardonnay with spice,
toasted nuts and gravelly, flint aromas.
Palate A pure and focussed palate with a bright, crunchy structure and fine acidity. The complex
barrel aged flavours also imparting textures that carry on the back of the fine acidity.
Cellaring Drinks beautifully now or can be cellared for 10+ years.

Marlborough, N.Z.

2/3 Mendoza, 1/3 B95 clones hand-picked from our home vineyard at 5 tonnes/ha (30hl/ha), from vines dating back to 1981. Fruit is whole bunch pressed and transferred directly to French oak barrels (15% new) and left to undergo indigenous primary and secondary malolactic fermentations for 18 months in barrel.

Bottled without fining and with only minimal filtration.
