Wine's oxford circus; central, but a confusing amount of exits
Chardonnay is one of the most produced wines in the world, recently it’s got a bad reputation for the sweet and oaky brands BUT don’t write it off. Chardonnay can be fresh and zippy or rich and creamy with everything in between. Warmer areas tend to produce more tropical flavours and fuller styles than cooler and oak ageing adds creaminess. If you’re not keen on oak, remember that French oak, is as a rule, less sweet than American.
