Join Emma Symington MW in this webinar looking at the regions, characteristics and varied styles of Australian Chardonnay.
From the first varietally labelled wines in 1972 to the big, buttery wines of the 1990s, to today’s regionally distinct, refined styles, Australian Chardonnay has come a long way in a short space of time. Today it is the most planted white variety in Australia, grown in 59 of Australia’s 65 wine regions. Join Emma Symington MW as she leads you through Australia’s key Chardonnay regions, discussing their regional characteristics, similarities and differences and explaining why today is such an exciting time for the variety.
