Dog Point Chardonnay Marlborough 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells of barrel ferment, tight and rich with a little butter and toasty notes of almond, all over rather fresh fruit. Very clear, tense even, with a lovely gentle, layered character. This is super vibrant and clear, with a touch of honied quality and floral notes over ripe citron/citrus fruits. There’s a smoky overlay on the finish, which shows pretty purely of citrus with some pear accent notes, all in a detailed, vibrant and finely balanced package. 91pts
