Chardonnay

If you like the idea of creamy, rich white wine in your glass, you’ll love the classic style of oak-aged Chardonnay wine.
On the other hand, if you prefer your wines to be lean, minerally and dry, then your perfect Chardonnay is the un-oaked kind.
How can a single grape offer such a variety of flavors? Well, winemaking and the climate where the grapes grow have everything to do with the answer.

Buttery Chardonnay
Oaked Chardonnays are rich, full-bodied and have additional flavors of vanilla, butter and even caramel from the oak. A cool climate, buttery Chardonnay will have more citrus flavors versus a warm climate Chardonnay, which will have more tropical fruit flavors.

Unoaked Chardonnay
Unoaked Chardonnay is far closer to the zesty style of Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc. Chardonnay wine tends to have less ‘green flavors’ than Sauvignon Blanc. Depending on how ripe the grapes were when picked, the flavor ranges from lemon and green apple (less ripe) to pineapple and figs (very ripe).
