“A chardonnay that celebrates the marriage of freshness, fruit flavour and well-judged oak. A palate with more curves than edges, its peachy, rockmelon flavours and toasty oak create a wine that blends the purity and freshness of France with the richness and generosity of Australia.” Chris Morrison. Sunday Telegraph, 02 December 2018
A large and rambling region on the Mediterranean coast of France. Styles, varieties and quality vary hugely. There are some true gems in the region though. Some appellations are outstanding but mostly producer will be the biggest indicator of quality.
The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
