Tony Bish ‘Skin in the Game’ Chardonnay 2019 – £28.50

A complex skin-contact Chardonnay from the mind of Tony Bish. A uniquely savoury Chardonnay, deliciously dry but complex. A nose of smoke, peppercorn and thyme give way to rich salted butter and ripe, crunchy apples. Gorgeous.

Description

Tony Bish ‘Skin in the Game’ Chardonnay 2019 – £28.50

This skin-contact Chardonnay is a ‘consumer-friendly’ take on this rustic style of wine. Tony Bish is a world-renowned winemaker, producing a varied range of wines using concrete egg fermentation. The grapes are foot crushed and hand plunged through a natural ferment on skins. It’s matured in one of Tony Bish’s concrete eggs to build balance and texture. The wine shines of ripe melons, balanced citrus acidity and salted buttery richness. A truly unique expression and a firm favourite here with the Corkage team; we’ve affectionately named this rich wine ‘The Roast Chicken Wine’ for it’s distinctive, smokey aroma! 

Pair this skin-contact Chardonnay with grilled meaty fish, fatty charred chicken thighs or blistered pork sausages. If you’re looking for vegan pairings, miso and mushrooms are your friends here but this could be a lot of fun with spicy tomato dishes seasoned with smoked paprika.

You can find this Chardonnay as part of a case deal, or if you’re after a rich and racy Viognier, then look no further
