Six Must Try Wines For This National Chardonnay Day

15.05.20

Elenor McIndoe

After a period of over oaking wines became very popular in the 1990s, lots of consumers turned their backs on the grape, not realising that it wasn’t the actual grape juice they didn’t like, but a then fashionable winemaking process. Today there are far less of these overly oaky expressions around, as winemakers have adapted to client demand of a more sophisticated clean fruit forward style. Renowned for the full-bodied whites of America, the elegance of Champagne and other sparkling wines, and the best whites of Burgundy it really is a grape of many perfect faces.

National Chardonnay Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in May every year to celebrate the greatest of all white wine grapes. Chardonnay is one of the few grapes that are grown all around the world and across every different climate in a myriad of styles. With so many options it can sometimes be hard to choose, so we have done it for you.  See below to see our six must try Chardonnays to celebrate national Chardonnay day on Thursday 21st May.
