Tony Bish Fat & Sassy Chardonnay 2023, New Zealand

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Other
Review Date : 25-Jun-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is vibrant with bright fruit aromas of citrus, pear, nectarine, toast and roasted nut details. Medium-full bodied, aromas of grapefruit, pear and peels melded with nectarine, delicate spice and almond. The creamy mouthfeel is packed with juicy fruit. Fine phenolic floats on a fresh, salivating acid line, an enticing interplay of fresh acidity and creaminess. The result of Cyclone Gabrielle, healthy fruit was sourced from 75% Marlborough and 25% Hawkes Bay, balanced oak and creamy palate stayed true to 'Fat & Sassy'. Match with grilled fish and prawns over the next 3 years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, aged 9 months in barrel with batonnage and 100% MLF. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Jun 2024 RRP $24.99
