The venerable Chardonnay vines in this important and historic site, were planted by Ivan and Margaret Sutherland in 1983 in a cool, strong-soiled vineyard on Dog Point Road. Their wide, twisted trunks bear witness to decades of good management, now in the gifted hands of Nigel Sowman, Viticulturalist for Dog Point Vineyard.

Colour

Brilliant, pale gold

Nose

Complex, layered aromatics, with yellow fruit; toasty, ferment-derived tones; and a fascinating musky note. This seems more the expression of an ecosystem - plant, soil, yeast, sun, etc. - than mere fruit.

Palate

Surprisingly, after the power and depth of the nose, this is very pure and bright on the palate, with a light carriage across formidable length. Flavours of lemon curd, fresh buttered toast, even jasmine rice. Compelling, at the moment, for its combination of aromatic intrigue and palate clarity
