2015 Dog Point Vineyard Chardonnay, Marlborough
£21, 13.5%, The Wine Society
Tasted at: Dog Point Tasting
Not as well known as the Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc releases, but every bit as good in my opinion, this is frequently among my favourite South Island Chardonnays. Toasty, savoury and enticing, it has citrus and beeswax notes supported by fresh, palate cleasning acidity and a nutty finish. Just starting to develop bottle-aged complexity.
