The Chardonnay is grown in all Australian states and thrives in all climatic zones. The wines from the cooler regions are mainly characterized by nuts
from apple, quince, grapefruit and limes, while those from the warm to hot areas are more reminiscent of peach and tropical fruits. The popularity of this wine has taken off thanks to the rich taste notes and the bouquet of ripe fruit. The Chardonnay has therefore become the most popular Australian white wine.
