Dog Point Chardonnay 2017

Hand picked fruit for The Dog Point Chardonnay is sourced from the home vineyard that dates back to 1981. Grapes are whole bunch pressed and transferred directly to French oak barrels (15% new) and left to undergo indigenous primary and secondary malolactic fermentations for 18 months in barrel. The resulting wine was bottled without fining and with only minimal filtration. The Dog Point Chardonnay is a ripe, citrus driven wine that displays characteristic biscuit and oatmeal characters and mild flinty notes that contrast and compliment the fruit. The palate displays the Dog Point hallmark fresh, vibrant acidity offered by the Mendoza Chardonnay clone used. 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.
