From under $20 to exclusive bottles, Perth’s Liberty Liquors Claremont, has the best range of chardonnay white wines in Western Australia. Chardonnay is one of the most popular white wines in Australia. Originating in the famed French wine region of Burgundy, this green-skinned grape is known for its versatility, being cultivated from regions as diverse as the South of England and Western Australian in Margaret River to New Zealand’s South Island. Owing to the versatility of the grape, the flavours and aromas of Chardonnay can change from region to region and winemaker to winemaker. Chardonnay can be divided into three subcategories: oaked, unoaked and somewhere in between. Before tasting and smelling the wine, oaked Chardonnay can be apparent through it’s slightly darker, more golden colour. The age of the oak and the duration of exposure changes the wine, imbuing it with vanilla or cedar characters and great textural complexity. Unoaked Chardonnay has a lighter, clearer complexion. The presence of steel barrels during winemaking allows the wine to retain the taste of fruit as well as its characteristic acidity. The winemakers of Chablis in France favour this method. Then there’s the third way – somewhere in between. Owing to partial barrel fermentation and greater restraint from winemakers, this style of Chardonnay can result in stronger, full-bodied wines with great character and complexity. Order and collect your chardonnay or have it delivered right to your door. Free shipping for orders over $100.
