Tony Bish Skeetfield Chardonnay 2019
This is Chardonnay of epic proportions. Richness, intensity, texture and complex layers of flavour, all harmoniously balanced. Denis and Sally Gunn’s Skeetfield Vineyard is in the Ohiti Valley, over Roy’s Hill from the Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay. This is sought after fruit from dry-farmed, Mendoza old-vines, put in the hands of a man devoted to Chardonnay.
Having successfully head up winemaking at Sacred Hill for years, Tony Bish established his own urban winery in Napier. From here he makes only Chardonnay, in a range of styles, from Hawkes Bay, a region as devoted to the variety as Tony.
