Many called 2013 the vintage of a generation and who would argue when you experience the richness, deep complexities and elegance in this Dog Point Chardonnay. Chardonnay of this complexity and quality takes many years for everything to come together in perfect harmony... in this case 7-years has seen it in a stunning drinking space. The sloping free draining clay based vineyards were planted with Burgundian clones and are organically managed. Through exceptional vineyard management the fruit yields are kept naturally low. When you have such outstanding vineyards, the vintage of a generation and the winemaking and viticulture prowess of owners James Healy and Ivan Sutherland (they made Cloudy Bay a global icon) you end up with an UMAMI Chardonnay like this.


Very engaging and complex aromas including ripe nectarine and grapefruit, subtle roasted nuts, nougat, baking spice, smoke and flint.


A beautifully rich and generous mid palate of stone fruit set in a finely creamed textural embrace. An array of baking spice, praline, nougat complexities unravel in the long grapefruit tinged finish. At 7-years it has become a seamless collaboration of power and elegance with an unforgettable finish. Keep drinking through 2025.
