Tony Bish - Finalist, Gourmet Traveller NZ Winemaker of the Year

Very limited availability in magnum format

Tony Bish is an icon of the New Zealand wine industry.  Back in 1986, Bish co-founded the Sacred Hill winery in Hawke's Bay while studying his oenology degree by correspondence.

As winemaker at Sacred Hill, he guided it to the status of Hawke's Bay superstar.  His nomination by Gourmet Traveller New Zealand magazine as Winemaker of Year i2018 was affirmation of his status and track record.

Bish was instrumental in the development of Sacred Hill Rifleman's Chardonnay, now considered to be one of the best Chardonnays made anywhere in the new world.

After three decades in the game, Bish started Tony Bish Wines, focusing exclusively on Chardonnay, drawing on Hawke's Bay fruit.  Singlehandedly, Bish 'raised the bar' for New Zealand Chardonnay.

Of the exceptional wines in the Tony Bish portfolio, we have a particular soft spot for the Golden Egg Chardonnay.  Fermented in two concrete eggs, supplemented by intelligent use of oak, it successfully bridges the divide between white Burgundy and new world Chardonnay.

Bish Golden Egg Chardonnay 2016 is a high class wine that displays tremendous depth of flavour, poise and complexity.  It ranks alongside Giaconda and Kistler as one of the most compelling examples of Chardonnay from the new world.

As a small volume wine, quantities are extremely limited.  There are just 15 six-packs available.  Do not miss the chance to grab a box or two of one of the best Chardonnays to hit these shores in recent times.

(Offer price - $55 per bottle in a straight six-pack)
"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues and some depth, a little lighter edged.  This has a very fresh and elegant nose with subtle aromas of white stonefruits along with an overlay of nutty and yeasty lees and soft, thirst-quenching mineral notes.  The aromatics are well proportion with good depth and expressed with clarity.  Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and lively with gently rich and vibrant fruit flavours of white stonefruits entwined with nutty, yeasty lees, unfolding nuances of smoke,  The flavours show precision and clarity, with slippery and mouthwatering, piquant acidity enlivening the mouthfeel.  The wine flows easily along a very fine phenolic-threaded line, leading to a long finish with nutty and yeasty elements.  This is a fresh, lively and subtly rich-fruited Chardonnay with yeasty and nutty detail on a slippery, fine-textured palate.  Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years.  100% hand-picked Hawke's Bay Mendoza clone fruit, with fermentation in two 1,600 L concrete eggs and two barriques, one new and one 2.y.o. with high solids, accounting for 12% of the total, the wine at 13.0% alc., all of the wine aged 11 months on lees with approx. 75% MLF conversion."
