2009 Dog Point Chardonnay Marlborough $40

This shows a bit of a honied character on the nose with floral accents and hints of clean lees over sweet cut lemon aromas. Lovey ripeness and weight on the palate, this manages to seem sweet without any sign of density. Absolutely beautifully balanced, with fruit that remains transparent, yet delivers great intensity of flavor of both orchard and citrus fruits, which echoes gently on the finish. This shows some nice minerality, offering mouth grab along with a fine acid wash on the finish, adding to the citrus quality. Very fresh. 90pts
