Dog Point Chardonnay (Marlborough) 2017 is available to buy in increments of 1

Pale straw in color. A pure, bright and youthful citrus driven chardonnay with complex, smokey, flint, toast and biscuit notes derived from extended barrel aging on full solids. 2017 was a strong year for Chardonnay that delivered vibrant, lively acidity. The palate is focused and restrained which unfurls on the finish and exposes the intense citrus core with underlying cashew, nutty flavors.
Notes from the Vendor

95 pts James Suckling

This has such complex and rich style to it with a flinty edge to the peach, grilled-lime and lemon-pith aromas. The palate has really rich textural layering and plenty of peach, grapefruit and pastry flavors. Resolved, powerful and smooth.

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.
