Tony Bish Fat & Sassy Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2022 $22

Pronounced nectarine and lemon notes on the nose lead to a palate awash with stonefruit and preserved lemon layers wrapped around a sawdusty, toasty core. If ‘fatness’ to you means ‘creaminess’ then that’s not what you’ll receive, but if you’re a fan of toasty, spicy characters then it definitely delivers.
