James Halliday – "Pressed to barrels (30% new) for wild fermentation. All the smart chardonnay techniques in play, 9 months on lees with minimal bâttonage. Lovely ripe flavours, of melon more than peach. Barrel-ferment characters like a touch of gingery spice, while the citrus elements push just a little towards tangy mandarin. Plenty on offer at this price."

hh89

Huon Hooke – "Bright, light to mid-yellow colour with a herbal, vegetal, silage and aroma, a strongly-oaked wine with a lot of vegetal notes. Full and soft, round and easygoing in the mouth, with generous Cognac-like oak and cleansing dryness to finish."

The Wine Front – Biodynamic farming, lees maturation, attention to detail, great vineyard sites. Rudi Bauer of Quartz Reef has many positives in the manifestation of his life work. Beyond that, and so often it’s hard to separate the person who makes the wine from the wine itself, he’s an outstanding human. And hilarious. That being said, it means little when wines are in brown paper bags being tasted. This wine leapt from the pack. Incredible intensity, inward concentration, a knife edge of acidity in finely wrapped layers of toastiness, marzipan, brioche with a sleek, lean profile of green apple and citrus. Fine, fine bubbles add dimension and freshness. Aside its precision, it’s gorgeous to drink, refreshing the palate with each sip, leaving lingering detail of the presence of the wine. Insanely good drinking. It’s fine wine personified. Kudos here.

The Wine Front – Almond, cinnamon, nutmeg, green tobacco, a little gun smoke, nashi pear and nectarine. There’s some real lemonade flavour along with dried pear, a pleasing crunch and freshness to acidity, a friand and dried coconut richness, and a bright finish of excellent length. Very good Chardonnay. Ticks a lot of boxes, you might say.

James Suckling – Expressive nose of white grapefruit, white pears, sea shells, nutmeg, cloves and dried lemons. It's medium- to full-bodied with a creamy and layered texture. Vibrant. Lovely sweet fruit and integrated subtle spice notes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Huon Hooke – Light, bright yellow hue with a complex bouquet of sneaky hints of buttered toast, roasted hazelnuts and underlying citrus fruits, lemon and grapefruit. Creamy lees and shortbread-like malo characters. There is excellent intensity of flavour powered along by great acidity that really drives the wine and prevents it being heavy. Concentration and drive in spadefuls. A generous, mouth-filling chardonnay with great amplitude and incredible length. Very satisfying to sip. No hurry to drink it—and time will bring increased complexity.

twf 92

The Wine Front – Sauvignon blanc and semillon with some chardonnay, they say. This is the Little Touch Of Christmas label (which is just a festive season alternative). About 20% is barrel fermented. It’s been a winning drink for a long while. Good balance, refreshing feel, easy going texture with a touch of extra interest. There’s good intensity of green pea/grassy semillon and a counter punch of tropical fruity semillon. The palate has good energy, stacks of freshness, dry finish. There’s all the citrus and zestiness to acidity you could ask for. Kind of an old school Margaret River dry white kind of feel, in the best possible way. It’s got plenty of charisma.

Chardonnay holds a special place in the hearts of wine lovers due to its versatility and wide range of expressions, depending on where it's grown and how it's made. Originating in the Burgundy region of France, this grape has found homes in almost every wine-producing region around the world. In its birthplace, Chardonnay produces some of the world's most revered white wines. In regions like Chablis, the wines are often mineral-driven, with high acidity and lean profiles. Move south to the Côte d'Or, and the wines gain richness, complexity, and often a touch of oak. The New World offers its own expressions. Places like California, especially regions like Napa and Sonoma, produce Chardonnays known for their full-bodied nature, often accompanied by flavors of ripe tropical fruits, vanilla, and butter. Meanwhile, regions like Australia's Margaret River or New Zealand's Marlborough produce wines that strike a balance between Old World minerality and New World fruitiness. This grape's adaptability and the myriad of styles it can produce is what makes Chardonnay a perennial favorite. Whether you prefer unoaked, mineral-driven whites or richer, oaked versions, Chardonnay offers something for every palate, reflecting the diversity and richness of the world's wine regions.
Chardonnay is the most planted white wine grape worldwide and is cultivated in nearly every wine-producing country. Chardonnay is a noble varietal, but it’s also sturdy. It thrives in cold and warm climates, from the frosty vineyards in Champagne to sunny California. The question is. Why is Chardonnay so popular? And what does it taste like? Is Chardonnay dry or sweet? Let’s talk about the illustrious grape and the wines made with it. Few wine grapes are as versatile as Chardonnay, so the wines made with it are always a pleasing surprise. Here’s what you want to know about Chardonnay.
Chardonnay is a white wine grape native to Burgundy. It is the offspring of the equally famous Pinot Noir and the rare Gouais Blanc and has been cultivated since the Middle Ages. Chardonnay produces medium- to full-bodied white wines, which can be fermented and aged in stainless steel or spent time in oak barrels. Most wines made with Chardonnay are fermented to dryness, meaning winemakers allow the yeast to turn all the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol. Chardonnay produces dry wines. Of course, in wine, there’s an exception to every rule. Producers in the New World sometimes allow Chardonnay grapes to hang in the vine for weeks after they ripen. These late harvested grapes can become sweet wine. The category, though, is rare.
Chardonnay produces some of the most concentrated white wines in the world, and concentration is a synonym for age-worthiness. That’s why fine White Burgundy, one of the nicest Chardonnays, can be aged for years, if not decades. The same goes for high-end Chardonnay produced elsewhere. Enjoy youthful Chardonnay within its first three years after the vintage. Oak-aged examples can still be enjoyable after the five-year mark. After that, only the most concentrated wines made with extraordinary grapes from prestigious sites will still be at their prime. However, wine doesn’t go bad in a day, but it will lose properties as it decays.
Chardonnay expresses its terroir nicely, so wines made with the grape will taste different depending on the climatic conditions where the grapes grew. Chardonnay from cold climates might offer scents of green apples and pears along with citrus notes and minerality. Chardonnay from cold temperatures will taste like golden apples and white flowers. Warmer climates will make Chardonnay smell and taste like tropical fruit, including mango and pineapple. Since Chardonnay often undergoes Malo-lactic fermentation, you can also expect buttery scents along with yeast aromas reminiscent of pastries. And if the wine is aged in oak casks, it will also have brown spices and vanilla on the nose and palate.
Chardonnay might be versatile, but its producers can only use it to make a few wine styles. Un-oaked Chardonnay and oak-aged Chardonnay are the most common, and they’re always white and dry. Producers can also make sparkling wine with Chardonnay, which can be blended with red grapes to produce sparkling rosé.
