Tony Bish

With over three decades of winemaking behind him, Tony Bish is one of New Zealand’s most highly respected winemakers.Tony is synonymous with Sacred Hill and Chardonnay, and the ‘Riflemans’ Chardonnay is seen as his signature wine. As is the trend nowadays, winemakers are taking the opportunity to do something of their own and a little differently from, and in addition to their ‘full-time’ job, and so it is with Tony Bish and the launch of his own label.

Tony’s Chardonnay is harvested from the DartmoorValley,Hawke’s Bay,this is Mendoza Chardonnay, winemaker's preferred clone. Barrel fermentation with French oak along with lees stirring has built depth texture and power.
