Dog Point Chardonnay 2020 (94 WS)
“Succulent and mouthwatering, with a snappy mix of lemon curd, lemon blossom, and flint elements. Shows more nuanced notes of salted butterscotch, brioche and litsea oil that linger in the background, while the fresh, vibrant acidity is sleek on the finish, providing focus and length. ” -M.W 10/23

Several influential voices in the wine industry believe that in time Chardonnay may prove New Zealand’s single highest achievement. All three of the Dog Point wines fermented in barrel are small in production, but the Chardonnay is the smallest, and at times indeed the most dazzling.

Almost since its inception, Dog Point has been recognized as among the very top (arguably the very top) wine producers in New Zealand. Their two very different Sauvignon Blancs, their Pinot Noir, and their Chardonnay are all wines of astounding quality and complexity not just in the context of New Zealand wines, but globally.
