Tony Bish Golden Egg Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked at Te Awanga and handled in concrete egg-shaped fermenters, which 'create natural convection currents, holding the yeast lees in suspension'. Bright, light yellow/green, it is weighty, with rich, ripe stonefruit flavours, showing good vibrancy and complexity, balanced acidity and a finely poised, lingering finish.
