Chardonnay

News

One of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, sparkling Blanc de Blancs to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Did you know? There are two different styles of Chardonnay wine. If you like the idea of creamy, rich white wine in your glass, you’ll love the classic style of oak-aged Chardonnay wine. On the other hand, if you prefer your wines to be lean, minerally and dry, then your perfect Chardonnay is the un-oaked kind. How can a single grape offer such a variety of flavours? Well, winemaking and the climate where the grapes grow have everything to do with the answer.
