Dog Point is one of the top performers of New Zealand's Marlborough. It's the creation of Cloudy Bay’s former viticulturalist and winemaker, Ivan Sutherland and James Healy. Their sumptuous Chardonnay is layered with toasty complexity and ripe fruit.
Meet the wines of Dog Point – an outstanding, award-winning range from New Zealand’s Marlborough region. In 2004 Ivan Sutherland and James Sealy decided to take the skills they’d learnt as viticulturalist and winemaker at Cloudy Bay and set up on their own. They had a head start as Ivan had planted vineyards in Marlborough back in the 1970s. Dog Point remains very much owned and run by the two families – a boutique winery focused on producing high-quality wines, as naturally as possible. Using indigenous yeasts and hand-picked fruit, the wine is meticulously made, and aged 18 months in French oak casks, while Burgundian methods of batonnage and ‘malo’ in barrel lend creamy complexity. Let it breathe and serve with seafood or whites meats.
"Smoke, hay, dried mango, preserved lemon and buttered toast on the nose. Full-bodied. Tight"
