The Chardonnay taste: dependent on external factors
One of the reasons the Chardonnay grape is so popular is its versatility. The grape itself does not have a hugely distinct flavor, so the taste of Chardonnay wines depends on external factors. For example, the Chardonnay wine region plays an important role. Chardonnay from cool climates often has a fresh taste, with aromas of green apple, for example. Does the same grape grow in a warmer region? Then aromas of tropical fruit are added. Moreover, much depends on the soil on which the grapes grow. So even between two different warm regions there can be quite a difference in taste. And not only the wine region plays a role. It also matters a lot how the grape is processed afterwards. A wood-aged Chardonnay is fuller than one stored in steel tanks.
Important points to consider when buying Chardonnay
Would you like to buy Chardonnay? Then you need to pay attention to a number of factors to find a wine that suits your taste. Much depends on the wine region and the type of barrels in which the Chardonnay is made. In the colder regions, such as Loire and Chablis, Chardonnay is usually aged on steel. This produces somewhat fresher wines. Would you prefer a fuller white wine? Then choose a wood barrel-aged Chardonnay, which gives them a fuller flavor.
