Tony Bish Golden Egg Chardonnay 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-Jul-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green hue. The nose is elegantly full, with layers of nuts, minerals, fine spice, stonefruit and citrus. Medium-full bodied, pronounced aromas of lemon and grapefruit interweaved with white peach, citrus peels, stony minerals, delicate spice and hints of almonds. The wine is expressive, layered and in well-proportions. A touch of creaminess provides volume. The refined mouthfeel of stony minerals is almost chalky, glides along with well-managed acid tension to linearity. This enticing, expressive Chardonnay is complex, layered with well-portioned minerals, creaminess and nutty elements. Match with paua risotto and sweet prawn sashimi 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+/20 pts (96 pts) July 2023 RRP $48
