This has some similar characteristics to the Section 94. The aromas are complex with nuts and wild yeast and soft oak. The flavours are of figs and citrus and a huge burst of yeast. If you enjoy a complex chardonnay try this one.
This Chardonnay is 100% estate grown fruit, barrel fermented, in French oak (15% new) for 18 months with alcohol coming in at 14%. Straw yellow in color, this Chardonnay opens up with aromas of pear, peach, pineapple, lime zest, toasty and roasted nuts. On the palate, medium bodied, lean in the mouth with a slightly sweet and creamy texture with fresh acidity. Very nice length on the finish, with a mix of citrus/ripe tree fruit and refreshing acidity. What you get from Dog Point Chardonnay 2009 is elegance and a great deal of finesse. And yes, a New Zealand white wine with a cork closure. Strongly recommended. 92/100
