Located in Marlborough, New Zealand’s premium wine growing region, Dog Point Vineyard produces wine that reflects the experience and passion of the people that make them. All fruit is from hand-picked, low cropped vines grown under organic principles. Wines are made to drink well on release or cellar gracefully for many years.

“This one is the for the flint and mineral fans. Strong slate and graphite scents, lemon and apple underlying. The palate is racy, whipcracked with citrus/white flesh stone fruit, charged with that flinty mineral thing going on. Sheesh, it’s got some velocity too. In its style, it’s done brilliantly. A fancy racing car of a wine. Cellar long too.” – 95 Points Mike Bennie, Winefront.

“Another exceptional, burgundy-beating Kiwi Chardonnay. 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.” – 17 points Jancis Robinson

“Medium-yellow colour, with a strong bouquet of smoky toasty oak and possibly some underlying sulfides. The wine is full-bodied, rich and well-concentrated, with amplitude, roundness and length. A bigger style: a full-blooded traditional chardonnay with liberal oak and artifact. It’s not subtle but very easy to love.” – 95 Points & 5 Stars Huon Hooke

“Ripe, stylish and quite complex chardonnay with grapefruit, white peach, nectarine, bran biscuit and subtle mineral and oyster shell flavours. An elegant and appealing wine with an ethereal texture and lengthy finish. Delicious now but might even get a little better with a few years bottle age.” – 96 Points Bob Campbell MW
