Grown on our home vineyard in Harvey, this Chardonnay was harvested at night, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks seasoned with French oak. Case (6pk) special September only.
During the early naughties, many wine lovers skipped the Chardy in favour of an intense affair with Sauvignon Blanc.
But the great news is that Chardonnay is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and welcoming back many previous admirers. People are falling in love all over again due to the popularity and emergence of ‘modern Chardonnay’.
Modern Australian Chardonnays are lighter, fresher and less oaked than their predecessors. These styles not only appeal to a whole new generation of wine drinkers, they also work exceptionally well with or without food.
As one of the world’s most widely planted grape varieties, Chardonnay can be made to suit a range of tastes, from those who love a big, rich mouth-filling white, to those who like it lean, fresh and zesty. In fact, Chardonnay’s enthusiasm for thriving in a variety of climates makes it one of the most diverse and popular white wines in history.
So, whether you never broke up with Chardonnay, or find yourself falling back under her spell, there is definitely room in the wine rack for this deliciously versatile white.
