Description

We're not sure what it is with Tony Bish and Chardonnays with gun references, but Skeetfield can now be considered right alongside the flagship Chardonnay he made so long for Sacred Hill. Skeetfield is named after Brick Gunn, a famous NZ champion skeet shooter, whose son Denis Gunn now dry-farms the old Mendoza vines. The resulting wine has to be tasted to be believed, a wine of immense and unbridled power, allied with finesse and refinement, the only way it could be much better is with a little time in your cellar!

Smells

The famous Taransaud oak is on display on the nose, with toasty, nutty, mealy notes mingling with ripe peach, brioche and hazelnut.

Tastes

Deliciously rich and mealy, with layers of generous peach and grapefruit, along with shortbread, custard, hazelnut and cream. A majestic Chardonnay with serious intensity and focus as well as almost unfathomable complexity, it is one of the greatest Chardonnays yet made in New Zealand... and will only improve over the next 4-7 years.
