Tony Bish Skeetfield Chardonnay 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-Sep-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. It has an elegant bouquet growing in volume, with aromas of roasted hazelnut, almond, delicate spice, unfolding floral hints, lemon curd, pear and stonefruit. Full-bodied, aromas of lemon curd, spiced pear, peach and floral graze the palate, enveloping integrated roasted hazelnut, almond and spice, enriching the wine with layers and elegance. Seamless acidity carries silky phenolics and spice to linearity. A masterful Chardonnay with refined texture and acidity, pure fruit and a lasting finish. Match with blue cod beurre blanc and king prawns over the next 8 years. Dry-farmed Mendoza clone handpicked, whole bunch pressed. 100% barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc, 60% new Taransaud French oak. 100% MLF, battonage, on lees for 12 months. 19.5-/20 pts (97 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $79.95
