Chardonnay - A Fine White Wine

Most people would agree chardonnay is an eminent white wine. The grapes are usually green in color. The flavor and taste will depend where the grapes were grown and what fermentation process was used. The wine is one of the most popular in the world today. The grapes are thin skinned. Most wine makers agree that the grapes used for chardonnay is probably a cross fusion between the pinot and the croatian blanc grape. The two mother grapes are both extinct, but it is ever increasing in popularity. These grapes are fermented and aged in oak barrels. The oak barrel aging is what produces the slight vanilla flavors in the wine. Try to stay away from the aged in glass bottles as the flavor is not well pronounced and balanced. The most popular and richly chardonnay belongs to the American and French wine makers.

Chardonnay wines have less acid content and if oak aged the flavor is tasteful. Please serve all these wines chilled. The wine goes extremely well with dishes that contain butter and cheese. Because it has less acid it goes well with seafood dishes also. The grape is also used in making Champagne and other types of sparkling wines. Nowadays wine makers are experimenting with different cross mixing of grapes to see what pops up. A look in your local wine store will show a wide variety of them even in pink and red color.

A word of caution, don't mess with a fine wine. Try to stay away from the latest genetic chardonnay colored wine. Preferred chardonnay should light green or white in color. The wine making process should be oak aged and not bottle aged. Thanks to federal labeling law you can determine the process used on the label. If it is not on the label look for a more deserving brand. While you ponder what brand to buy, also keep in mind what delicious dish you deserve with it. Chardonnay wine should be served chilled and as you drink it simply be happy and let your troubles melt away.
