“Nuts and honey, saline too, a little spice, apple and melon. It’s a gentle wine, kind of buttery and honeyed, but with balanced acidity, a glossy feel, but with a fine powdery texture, lemon curd and ginger, sizzled sage in butter, and a slightly chalky finish of good length. A different style to your usual Yarra Chardonnay, though none the worse for that, just different. Expressive and good to drink.”
One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
