En Primeur Request

To check the availability of this En Primeur product please contact us

 

 

Mid lemon-gold. Struck match, toasted hazelnut oak, white and yellow peach, with some restraint. Brisk citrus and stone fruit. Spicy, struck match dominates the palate, though there’s plenty of density. Vanilla-cream, fairly long finish.

      Tasting Notes
      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.

      Dog Point vineyards are certified organic under the BioGro New Zealand Programme which is an independent certification process established to promote environmentally friendly, sustainable and responsible practices. These organic philosophies drive our approach to wine making and help ensure the vines are at their best for next year's harvest.

      Bouquet: A ripe, citrus driven Chardonnay. Characteristic biscuit and oatmeal secondary characters and mild flinty notes contrast and compliment the fruit.

      Palate: Our hallmark fresh, vibrant acidity offered by the Mendoza clone offers vitality and vibrancy. A modest amount of new oak delivering subtle char and phenolic structure to the wine. An intensely flavoured yet youthful and lively vintage for Dog Point Chardonnay.

      Food match: Scallops, white fish and BBQ Pork.

      Cellaring: Five to seven years.

      "Definitely not shying away from matchstick on the nose, but it costs one heck of a lot less than a Coche wine. Very crystalline with good fruit focus on the mid palate. Very far from sweet. Crisp and rewarding. Great balance and fans out on the finish.
      Drink 2018 - 2023.
      17points."
      (Jancis Robinson, JR Purple Pages, December 2018)

      "A blend of Mendoza and Clone 95, all wild-fermented in barrel with 15% new oak, the 2016 Chardonnay is a terrific effort. Struck flint and pencil shavings mark the nose, alongside toasted almonds, pineapple and melon notes. It's medium to full-bodied, with a silky texture and long, citrusy finish. It should age up to a decade.
      93 points."
      (Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, March 2019)
