Dog Point Vineyard Chardonnay 2011

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandThis Marlborough chardonnay has spent eighteen months in French Oak barrels on full solids, a small portion of said wood is new. No racking and natural MLF this structured white is rich with toasted popcorn, wild flowers, perfumed pear, earthy lees and smoked stone. The intensity and texture is well balanced with riveting fruit and pointed acidity underneath. Flint lingers on the finish. A beaut at this stage, with the reductive notes a seamless and beneficial part of the whole.Tasted: 23 January 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 45.00 BC 53.00 private wine shops MB 57.00 Producer: Dog Point Vineyard Ltd.Distributors: Trialto Wine Group
