Tony Bish is NZ's only Chardonnay exclusive producer and highly respected for his long history crafting the famous Rifleman's Chardonnay - one of NZ's best. In a world first, he has crafted a Chardonnay exclusive in an Ovum. This French oak, egg shaped vessel creates unique convection currents the develop the rich flavours and textures that are hallmarks of this luxurious Chardonnay. Tony describes the Ovum as an "incredible piece of craftsmanship and extraordinarily beautiful" and it created a calming, positive vibe in his cellar which is lead to the name ZEN. Handpicked fruit from the Mendoza Chardonnay vines of his famed Skeetfield Vineyard are whole bunch pressed and provide a glorious expression of the site combined with the very special properties of the Ovum which it spends 12-months developing its exquisite profile. Jamie Goode (Wine Anorak, UK) says it "may be the best New Zealand Chardonnay I have tried". It certainly will provide a ZEN moment when you taste it.a magnificent Chardonnay.


Alluring spices of nutmeg and cinnamon with fine French vanilla pod aromas surround fine citrus and deeper golden peach characters.


You'll be in no doubt you have just put one of NZ's finest Chardonnay to your lips. Strikingly complete and seamless in its youth, it has endless layers of exceptionally rich citrus and fine stonefruit flavours. Praline, nutty and very fine spice notes are in complete harmony with the fruits and the depth of flavour is seemingly endless. The textural qualities are something quite special and the fine acidity provides excellent balance. It couldn't be more appropriately named, enjoy your ZEN moment now through 2025-27.
