Chardonnay is a wine that offers a wide range of styles due to its versatile nature in adapting to various soils and climates. This adaptability allows for a various array of flavours and aromas to be present in the wine. In cooler regions, Chardonnay can be lean and crisp with mineral notes, while in warmer climates, it can be full-bodied with tropical fruit flavours such as pineapple and mango. The wine typically has notes of green apples, pears, citrus, and stone fruits but can also exhibit a buttery mouthfeel with hints of hazelnut. Its flexibility in taste and texture makes Chardonnay a wine that can be enjoyed on many occasions.
