Buttery Chardonnay

Buttery Chardonnay

Looks for the best selection of high quality buttery Chardonnays in Australia? 

If you were to ask me what is the one style of wine customers ask for more than any other in our store, a strong contender would be full-flavoured, big buttery Chardonnay.  The surprising thing is, it’s a style that’s quite difficult to find in today's wine world.   Here we offer a mouth-watering selection of old School Chardonnay, the way it used to be. 

So what makes Chardonnay buttery?  Here we need to delve into the world of ‘hands-on’ winemaking.  The idea that the winemaker's touch should be felt in a wine. This idea is also hugely out of fashion, with 'minimal intervention’, ‘natural wine’ and ‘lo-fi’ all the rage.  Here the philosophy states that wines are made in the vineyard, and a winemakers job is little more than shepherding the grapes through fermentation, and into a wax-sealed bottle.  

Back to hands-on winemaking, I’m going to gloss over a lot of the technical details, because, well, it’s technical and not very interesting to read about (that's what google and youtube are for). However, one term you may have heard used is ‘malolactic fermentation’ or ‘malo’ as we like to say in the wine game.   

Along with a method called lees stirring or ‘bâtonnage as the French would say (stirring dead yeast cells in the barrel for extra flavour and softness) malo is responsible for most of that creamy, buttery mouthfeel, with friendly bacteria converting malic acid (think tart green apples) to lactic acid (think milk, yogurt, butter and soft cheese).   

What is the best buttery Chardonnay?  For those in search of beautifully flavoursome, big buttery Chardonnay the below wines are our top picks from around the world.
