Dog Point Chardonnay 2018

Regular price $0.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $0.00 USD

A versatile variety found in nearly all wine growing regions around the world, Chardonnay is barely uttered in the same breath as New Zealand, yet it makes up 6% of total wine production for the country. In the hands of James Healy & Ivan Sutherland, you wonder why even more isn’t planted.

  Winemaking is distinctly Burgundian with hand harvests, direct press into barrels (15% new), and fermentations with native yeast only, with  elevage of 18 months. Dog Point is both wild and refined. 

Hints of flint come off on the nose, with bright lemon and other citrus, evoking nostalgic thoughts of fireworks, cap guns, and lemonade. The palate follows the nose with hints of grilled lemon, salted grapefruit, and a touch of vanilla cream. A late summer BBQ in a glass!
