A Carapace of Chardonnay

Chardonnay and Crab make a pretty fine pair on the table but that’s not where the metaphor ends. A Crab without its carapace is a bit wobbly and useless really, much like a Chardonnay that is matured in the absence of a nurturing outer shell of high-quality French oak. So here are four extra tasty Chardies - all of which have been cloaked and cosseted in the good stuff.

    A Carapace of Chardonnay

    Quality Chardonnay, tick. Quality French oak, tick. Here are the details on four for you to get stuck into.

    Tomich Q96 Chardonnay 2016
    Gold Medal
    96pts Kim Brebach
    Inspired by Burgundian winemaking and using a Burgundian clonal selection of Chardonnay (96) this is an exceptional Chardy. Hazelnut, creaminess, nectarine and other stonefruits abound in this wine which is full-bodied in spite of its low alcohol.

    Heirloom Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2018
    4 x Silver Medals
    91pts Sam Kim
    Lots of stonefruits, struck match and cheesy complexity here along with mushroom. Plenty of refined French oak and tangy citrus before a finish which is long and dry. A superb Chardonnay and excellent value for money.

    First Creek Hunter Valley Chardonay 2018
    94pts James Halliday
    94pts Kim Brebach
    A beautifully textural beast this Chardonnay with rich, ripe stonefruits ceding to lemon curd and custard. Very high-quality French oak is in evidence too. A terrific drink over the next few years.

    Leconfield Coonawarra Chardonnay 2019
    94pts Kim Brebach
    Lots of peach and almond meal here. Quality French oak too and plenty of the cheesy creamy quality which comes from lees stirring while the wine is in barrel. Good acid too. Has the zip and cut to match most foods now. As it ages it should become more textural and buttery.
