    This is one of NZ’s premier brands from Marlborough and the wine is made by the very talented ex-Cloudy Bay duo James Healy and Ivan Sutherland. As wine writer Bob Campbell puts it “these boys really know their stuff“.

    Everything these lads touch is sheer class, especially their Chardonnay which hits the mark every year. To give you an idea Master of Wine Bob Campbell has given this 5 Stars for 8 out of the last 10 vintages! Stunning!

    A single vineyard wine, hand picked fruit, aged for 18 months in French oak, certified BioGro organic, this is what the Dog Point boys reckon is all about “Gunflint, smoke and gravelly tones sit alongside the citrus core of fruit flavours. The extended barrel ageing of 18 months shows with nutty flavours and creamy texture.”

    Every vintage is an absolute must try for all serious Chardonnay lovers. Drink now to 2024 and food match with fresh seafood like scallops, mussels and oysters and white meats.
