LEGENDARY PRE-CHRISTMAS SALE ON NOW
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Tony Bish is one of New Zealand's most celebrated winemakers and has been hugely influential in the development of the modern New Zealand Chardonnay style. Fat n Sassy is styled to deliver discerning Chardonnay lovers a rewarding Chardonnay at a realistic price point. It's creamy, toasty and has plenty of punchy fruit weight. A great anytime wine.
From the stellar 2019 vintage, this is quite possibly the best vintage yet of this iconic Chardonnay. The 2018 collected its fair share of accolades and we expect the 2019 to be a repeat, and to sell out just as quickly. Climb in before it's all gone.
Sam Kim writes"Gorgeously fruited and immediately appealing, the inviting bouquet shows golden peach, mango, lemon zest, hazelnut and nougat characters with subtle butterscotch complexity. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and persistency, while remaining balanced and harmonious with creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity. It’s crowd-pleasing and highly enjoyable."
The winery writes "This Chardonnay has a full, broad nose of refreshing and bright aromas of ripe yellow stone fruits and citrus fruits along with an edge of creamy and nutty barrel-ferment and spicy oak notes, subtle lemon-curd and buttery MLF notes. The palate has flavours of citrus fruits melded with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty, spicy oak.The mouthfeel is enriched by integrated layers of lemon-curd and buttery MLF nuances. The palate has an underlying freshness with acid poise, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line with creamy nutty notes leading to a sustained finish with toasty oak."
