At the Fine Wine Company, we offer a diverse range of different wines and one of the leading white wines has almost always been Chardonnay. Named for the green-skinned grape which it is made from, Chardonnay is one of the most widely planted grape varietals in the world and this in turn ensures there are thousands of different Chardonnays to taste and enjoy. Our range of Chardonnays has offerings from around the world and here we are looking at just five.
Nicolas Catena Chardonnay, 2013
Combining the unique expressions of three individual high altitude vineyard sites, this 2013 Catena Chardonnay is complex and full of fresh, typically Chardonnay flavours. It’s an intense green in colour with hints of yellow and the flavour brings together classic tropical fruits with a more unique honeyed aftertaste. Fresh and clean with lots of acidity, this is an Argentinian Chardonnay which ticks every box.
Craggy Range Kidnappers Chardonnay, 2012
Named after an area not far from where is it produced, Cape Kidnappers, Craggy Range Kidnappers Chardonnay, 2012, is a pale straw-coloured offering. Its aroma is floral with notes of honeysuckle and toasted almond. Its flavour is subtle yet fresh with grapefruit and peach and the finish is of a salty/briny character. The producers at Craggy Range use traditional winemaking techniques seen in Chablis in France when producing their Kidnappers Chardonnay.
Greywacke Chardonnay, 2013
There is a nutty, almost savoury flavour to this New Zealand Chardonnay from Greywacke. It brings together a surprising combination of pink grapefruit, baked apples and fig, with an undertone of toasted hazelnuts. The nutty savoury flavour of this wine makes it fresh and crisp on the palate. Greywacke is known for its world-leading Sauvignon Blanc, but the Chardonnay does not disappoint either.
Les Mougeottes Chardonnay IGP Pays D’OC, 2015
A white Burgundy that delivers on flavour as well as price, Les Mougeottes Chardonnay 2015 has all the hallmarks of a great white wine. Soft and tempting buttery notes are teamed with the light tropical flavours that are essential for a good Chardonnay. It is a light and subtly flavoured wine which is refreshing and ultimately drinkable.
MadFish Unwooded Chardonnay, 2013
With its unique name and equally unique flavour, Madfish Unwooded Chardonnay is a fine example of a Chardonnay which has a helping hand from a couple of other varietals. This Chardonnay combines a blend that is mainly made up of Chardonnay but also includes a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, adding an herbaceous edge to its character. Melon, grapefruit and citrus characters combine and end in a long, crisp acidic note.
The Fine Wine Company white wines offer a diverse choice, with single bottle and case options and our range of Chardonnays ensures you can find a flavour to suit your tastes.
