Chardonnay can get a bad rap (thanks Kath and Kim) but the heavily oaked styles of the 80’s are long gone and we think any grape that can make Champagne deserves a second chance. A Chardonnay from the Riverina can come in two distinct styles; lightly oaked with a vibrant straw colour, rich honey and vanilla aromas and flavours of ripe fruit and butterscotch. The unoaked version is closer to your Sauvignon Blanc in style and produces a paler wine with flavours of peach, green apple, melon and a hint of citrus.
At the recent Riverina Wine Collective launch, Chardonnay was served alongside roast pumpkin with walnut and parmesan crumble, burnt butter and sage, receiving rave reviews.
