Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a fairly neutral wine, meaning it comes in a wide range of styles and will respond well to the terroir in which it is grown and also to the intentions of the winemaker. The flavors that chardonnay typically produces range from crisp apples and minerals, all the way to the other side of the spectrum where chardonnay can produce a full and rich wine flavored like butterscotch and vanilla. The best examples of Chardonnay are very well balanced, meaning they have some oak influence which provides good support to the fruit and mineral flavors.

One comment we hear often from consumers is the dreaded: “I don’t like chardonnay.” That comment is based on their own personal tasting experiences, but they are likely talking about the heavily wooded style of Chardonnay that has been popular in California for some time. If the same taster had to taste a crisp and subtle Chardonnay from the Burgundy region, they would probably really enjoy it and not realize they were tasting Chardonnay.

The home of Chardonnay is in the Burgundy region of France, which produces some of the finest examples of Chardonnay which are sought after by collectors across the world. Chardonnay is a good traveler, meaning it has found new homes in California and Australia, and many other places. It was introduced to South Africa fairly recently, in the 1970’s, and South Africa now produces many fine examples. To shine, Chardonnay prefers cooler climates and limestone soils, which is what Burgundy has, and what Chardonnay purists all over the world look for.

Chardonnay is food friendly and depending on the style of Chardonnay can pair well with many different seafood and poultry dishes. A richer style Chardonnay can pair well with turkey with gravy and stuffing.
