Tony Bish Zen Chardonnay 2017

97/100 | Jamie Goode "This is profound. The best New Zealand Chardonnay I have tried."
18.5 /20 | Roderick Smith MW  "I’m a very mean scorer so 18 is very rare from me"  

A breakthrough wine in New Zealand wine production. Vinted from a new Ovum (egg shaped oak cask - the only one in the Southern Hemisphere) this is a near perfect expression of the famous dry farmed Skeetfield Vineyard - a seminal site for old vine Chardonnay. The palate is rich and creamy with brilliant mouthfeel and tremendous drive - but is not either noticeably oak driven or heavy in any way -  and the finish is incredibly long and satisfying. It is very clearly one of the finest Chardonnay experiences we have ever tasted and an absolute credit to the winemaker - a thoroughly modern and quite different interpretation of fine Hawkes Bay Chardonnay and a true showcase of what is very clearly a very special vineyard site. Bravo.

Tasting Notes
Jamie Goode writes " 100% ovum, first use. Skeetfield fruit, unfined and unfiltered. Beautiful nose with subtly mealy citrus fruit. The palate has beautiful texture and finesse. There’s a bright, lively citrus core with fine-grained structure. Such precision and detail with some spicy, mealy richness. There’s amazing intensity and balance here. There are layers of flavour, with lemons, saline notes, and some grapefruit notes. This is profound. Tony Bish says egg Chardonnays don’t need to age as long before release, and may not live as long as barrique aged ones, but can deliver profundity. 97/100"
