Quick Overview

 Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine, 01 March 2018 -    Nick Stock -  Supermodel Chardonnay 2015 is a stunner and a poster child for the age of refinement of great NZ wine.
Bob Campbell MW     96 Points -  Concentrated chardonnay with grapefruit, struck flint, mineral, hazelnut, brioche and spicy oak flavours. Youthful wine that’s approachable now and offers cellaring potential. A very classy wine indeed, with subtle complexity and underlying power.
Gary Walsh     95 Points The Wine Front, 27 January 2017 - What a wonderful Chardonnay. White peach and grapefruit, oatmeal and struck match, tight tracks of gleaming acidity, and a bullet of juicy but restrained flavour racing down them. A little flintiness. Some cashew creaminess. A tight and mouth-watering limey finish that makes you eye the level of the glass too often, and fret over it. You’d be mad not to.

Product Description

If you’re looking for a wine to partner with scallops, white fish or barbecued pork, look no further. This Chardonnay is yet another great example of why the Dog Point boys receive accolades worldwide for their winemaking prowess. It’s packed with bold aromas of white and yellow stone fruits entwined with citrus, nuts and minerals. Couple that with complex smoky, toasty and oak vanillin characters alongside creamy barrel-ferment layers, and you have one very refined Chardonnay.


Pale Straw in colour.A ripe, citrus driven Chardonnay. Characteristic biscuit and oatmeal secondary characters and mild flinty notes contrast and compliment the fruit. On the palate, our hallmark fresh, vibrant acidity offered by the Mendoza clone offers vitality and vibrancy. A modest amount of new oak delivering subtle char and phenolic structure to the wine. An intensely flavoured yet youthful and lively vintage for Dog Point Chardonnay.

Dog Point has delivered yet another very classy chardonnay, which is no surprise given the quality of the 2015 vintage. Complex and powerful wine with grapefruit, struck flint/mineral, hazelnut, brioche and spicy oak flavours. Will age, but why wait?

Handpicked, from vines that yield 30hl/ha (ie Grand Cru Burgundy level). Wild fermented, and spends 18 months in barrel, just 15% new., with full malolactic fermentation. As ever, this is carefully coiffed; a masterpiece of how to manage the interplay between spicy oak and white peach fruit, the acid perfectly natural. It’s a proudly ripe, even sunny Chardonnay, but it still finishes with grapefruit acidity tang. I can’t fault the perfect flow of flavours. Excellent, moreish Chardonnay of volume. Probably the best Dog Point Chardonnay in years too. Just delicious wine. Best drinking: 2017-2021.

 Australian Wine Review, 24 October 2017     Huon Hooke     94 Points
 Bright, light to medium yellow colour. The bouquet is dominated by smoky oak, which is very much a signature of this winery but frankly a bit overpowering, at least at this tender age. It is, however, on current release. The wine is concentrated, powerful, intensely fruit flavoured and driving on the palate, the smoky oak no longer ruling the roost. Searing acidity; long finish. A high-quality wine which should age well and long, allowing the oaky bouquet time to integrate better.

The Real Review, 10 October 2016     Raymond Chan
 Even straw-yellow with lemon hues, a little paler on the edge. The nose is softly full and gently concentrated, unfolding deep, integrated aromas of ripe white stonefruits layered with nutty lees and oak notes and complexing gunflint and mineral elements. The aromatics are refreshing with an underlying tautness. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and mouthfilling flavours of sweetly ripe white and yellow stonefruits entwined with an amalgam of mealy detail, soft creamy barrel-ferment elements nutty lees and oak, complex gunflint and minerals, revealing some oak toast. The flavours form a concentrated core, and the palate has fresh, lacy acidity providing energy and tension. The wine carries smoothly to a long and sustained finish of stonefruits, nuts, and flint. This is a rich, concentrated, deeply layered Chardonnay with complex flavours of stonefruits, mealy and nutty notes, gunflint and toast on a fresh, but smooth palate. Match with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 5-6 years. Approx. two-third Mendoza and one-third clone fruit, from vines dating back to 1981 in age, hand-picked, WBP and directly pressed to barrel, indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 15% new oak with full MLF. 19.5/20
