Already creating a buzz, high-end, bright, crisp, mineraly, richly fruity, unoaked Chardonnays are emerging as a new category, which already has Robert Parkers attention. The field is not crowded now and it is great to be ahead of the curve.


Food Pairing:
Fantastic with salads, spring, fresh vegetables, Picholine olives, anchovies and cured meats, eclectic, exotic, fusion, pan Asian, East-meets-West cuisines that have difficulty carrying oak.

Region Description

(shar dohn nay)—This noble grape’s reputation was established in France, particularly in the Burgundy region, and the highly prized Chardonnay wines from Chablis, Mâcon, Mersault, and Pouilly-Fuissé are imitated by winemakers around the world. Generally an oaked wine (whether from expensive oak barrels or a quick soak in oak chips), its fruity aromas and flavors range from apple in the cooler regions to tropical fruits such a pineapple in the warmer regions. It can also display subtle earthy aromas, such as mushroom or minerals. It has a medium to high acidity and is generally full-bodied. Classical Chardonnay wines are dry. Chardonnay is also an important grape in the Champagne district where it's picked before fully ripe and while it still has high acid and understated fruit flavors—the perfect combination for champagne. California has adopted this grape with a fervor and there are some 200 wineries producing Chardonnay wines in other parts of the United States. Chardonnay has also seen a tremendous planting surge in Australia, and new vineyards are being planted in Italy, Lebanon, New Zealand, Spain, and South Africa.
