Tony Bish Golden Egg Chardonnay 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 14-Jun-2022
Bright, pale yellow with depth and a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is elegantly presented, concentrated and lifted aromas with a citrus core, stonefruit and a hint of pineapple, melded with delicate spice, subtle bread dough, and creamy elements. Medium-bodied, a focused palate carries lemon, lemon curd and pineapple passing through crushed rocks, unveiling delicate spice, chamomile, almond butter and a hint of creamy yoghurt. The mouthfeel is sleek, combining smooth flowing creaminess and crisp minerals texture. The wine shows concentration of fruit with underlying power; seamless acidity carries the wine effortlessly to a long lingering. This stylish, sleek Chardonnay shows refinement and elegance with concentrated fruit, seamless acidity, and well-portioned spice and texture. Match with kingfish tataki and langoustine over the next 6-8 years. Handpicked Mendoza clone Chardonnay, fermented and aged in NZ made concrete egg-shaped fermenters, full MLF. 13.5% alc. 19.5-/20 pts (97 pts) June 2022 RRP $42.99
