What could be better than the chameleon grape? Well, actually the grape itself has a flavor profile: green apple, melon, pear and sometimes tropical fruit. But when oak is introduced the grape can be transformed. Oak and malolactic conversion are stylistic choices that when applied lend the wine a creamy, rich texture and caramel, toast, even butterscotch aromas. The Chardonnay grape can masquerade as white Burgundy or Champagne and of course it can be bottled under its varietal name Chardonnay. There is a style for every palate.
