Description

Ivan and Margaret Sutherland were among the earliest Marlborough wine industry pioneers who planted grapes in Marlborough in the late 1970s. While working at Cloudy Bay Vineyards, Ivan met James Healy, where the pair played an integral part of the evolution of the Cloudy Bay brand. Discovering they shared the same aspirations, Ivan & Margaret and James & Wendy returned to a more ‘hands-on’ approach launching the Dog Point label in 2004 using fruit from the 2002 vintage. The name Dog Point dates back to the earliest European settlement of Marlborough and the introduction of sheep to the district. These were the days where, due to a lack of fences, boundary riders used boundary-keeping dogs to protect the local flocks of sheep. Shepherd’s dogs sometimes became lost or wandered off, eventually breeding to form a marauding pack that attacked the same flocks they were meant to be protecting. Over time the settlers were able to remove these wild dogs and the area was named Dog Point.

TASTING NOTES

A pure, bright and youthful citrus-driven chardonnay with complex smokey, flint, toast and biscuit notes derived from extended barrel aging on full solids. The hallmarks of Dog Point chardonnay are ever-present here with pure saline and crisp palate structure.

FOOD PAIRING

Perfect match with scallops, white fish, poultry and BBQ pork.
