All Tony Bish wines are produced in vineyards certified according to the New Zealand sustainability system. The vines are managed sustainably without the use of pesticides. The harvested fruit is carefully destemmed without crushing the grapes. After the juice has settled, it is transferred to large, 9hL French oak barrels for further maturation.

The Tony Bish Fat & Sassy Chardonnay (aka the Fat and Brutale Chardonnay) has a full, broad nose with refreshing and bright aromas of ripe yellow stone fruit and citrus fruits, along with an edge of creamy and nutty barrel yeast and spicy oak notes, subtle lemon curd and buttery to show. The taste has aromas of citrus fruits, fused with creamy barrel fermentation and nutty, spicy oak. The mouthfeel is enriched by integrated layers of lemon and some vanilla. The palate has an underlying freshness with acid balance, and the wine flows along a finely textured line with creamy nutty notes leading to a lingering finish with toasted oak. This is a delicious aperitif wine, but also an excellent accompaniment to rich salads and seafood.

It was the early 80's when Tony Bish started his journey with wine. He had little money at the time, but with the little money he did have he went skiing at Mountt Hutt. Here the first vintage with Corbans in Gisborne was a pragmatic start to what has become a forty-year passionate career. Six years later, Tony graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in oenology. At that stage, Tony's new knowledge and experience were already being called upon. In 1986 he founded Hill Wines in Hawkes's Bay together with the Mason brothers Sacred. Tony consciously makes the choice to only continue with the Chardonnay grape................

Vineyard for 2021 Tony Bish Fat & Sassy Chardonnay

Het was begin jaren 80 toen Tony Bish zijn reis met wijn begon. Hij had weinig geld in die tijd, maar ging met het kleine beetje dat hij wél had skiën op Mountt Hutt. Hier was de eerste vintage met Corbans in Gisborne een pragmatische start van wat een veertigjarige passievolle carrière is geworden. Zes jaar later studeerde Tony af met een Bachelor of Applied Science in de oenologie. In die fase werd er al beroep gedaan op Tony's nieuwe kennis en ervaring. In 1986 richtte hij namelijk samen met de gebroeders Mason Sacred, Hill Wines in Hawkes's Bay op. Hierin maakt Tony bewust de keuze om alleen verder te gaan met de Chardonnay druif. Hij en Karryn lanceerden Tony Bish Wines in 2013 en ze verkopen nu vier chardonnay-stijlen rechtstreeks aan andere chardonnay-liefhebbers in het hele land en over de hele wereld. Tony's creatieve geest werd losgelaten in 2013, na een reis naar Zuid-Amerika, waar hij wijn maakte die werd geproduceerd in eivormige tanks. Met wat vindingrijkheid en lokale knowhow van de in Hastings gevestigde NZ Tanks, bouwde Tony de eerste betonnen eierfermentoren in Nieuw-Zeeland.
