Tony Bish is synonymous with Chardonnay. It is the only variety he produces and the core Fat & Sassy label is his bread and butter  – or more aptly maybe toast and butter.

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"This Chardonnay has a full, broad nose of refreshing and bright aromas of ripe yellow stone fruits and citrus fruits along with an edge of creamy and nutty barrel-ferment and spicy oak notes, subtle lemon-curd and buttery MLF notes. The palate has flavours of citrus fruits melded with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty, spicy oak.

The mouthfeel is enriched by integrated layers of lemon-curd and buttery MLF nuances. The palate has an underlying freshness with acid poise, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line with creamy nutty notes leading to a sustained finish with toasty oak."

5 Stars & 94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim, May 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"It's instantly appealing on the nose with grilled stone fruit, mango, French vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters. The palate delivers excellent weight and roundness, gorgeously complemented by creamy texture and fine acidity. Richly styled and delectably expressed with a lengthy satisfying finish. At its best: now to 2028."

92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"Bold and expressive bouquet filled with a power pack of yellow peaches and ripe apple, layers of vanilla spice and burnt butter, some extra wood spices and a raw brown sugar note. On the palate lots of cream-fresh and peach flavours, whipped butter wrapped in a silky cream texture. Balanced and ready, tasty and delicious. Best drinking from 2023 through 2026."

Reviews for the 2021 vintage below…

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2021 Vintage)
"'All curves and lusciousness with exceptional sass', the 2021 vintage is a high impact, upfront style, made with use of barrel fermentation and a softening malolactic fermentation. Bright, light yellow/green, it is full-bodied, with generous, ripe, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing considerable complexity, balanced acidity, a creamy texture, and strong drink-young appeal. Best drinking mid-2023+."
