Enjoy it now or cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant before serving.

Tony Bish is one of the most dedicated producers of Chardonnay in the world. He has spent the last 30 years continuously reinventing the Burgundy grape, leading to the establishment of his winery, Tony Bish Wines, in 2013.

The headquarters for Tony Bish Wines is found in Hawkes Bay and is home to the only egg-shaped fermenting casks in New Zealand. It’s an unusual method that Tony picked up in South America, which allows for more yeast-to-wine interaction, and minimal human interference. It began with concrete eggs, but this Zen Chardonnay is the first hatching from something slightly different, called “The Ovum”. This is a giant, egg-shaped, French oak fermenting cask, made by Taransaud and the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Zen Chardonnay is Tony Bish’s ultra-premium wine, packed to the brim with aromas of lemon peel, peach, roasted hazelnuts and soft buttered bread. The palate is detailed, with subtle spices, pure fruits and an elevating acidity. It is perfect for Chardonnay lovers who want to taste a brilliant and utterly unique expression of the grape. Pair it with seafood, such as lobster or salmon, or risotto with butternut squash.
