Hardys The Riddle Colombard-Chardonnay 2014

Hardys The Riddle Colombard-Chardonnay 2014

The combination of the zingy character of Colombard with the fuller, richer style of Chardonnay produces this effortlessly drinkable and refreshingly lively wine. Both varieties are fermented in stainless steel without oak contact and the wine is subsequently vibrant and very delicious.

South Eastern Australia region of Australia

The term South Eastern Australia covers a vast area of land and pretty well covers anything that isn’t Western Australia.  This means any generic wine from the states of South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania, can be labelled as such.

Generally speaking, the region benefits from a Mediterranean climate and indeed, even has the same latitudes as many a European winemaking region.

Colombard-Chardonnay

Colombard and Chardonnay are two of the most widely planted white grape varieties in France, South Africa and Australia. The former is one of the world’s great blending grapes for white wine, capable of making slightly floral wines with decent acidity. It is a high-yielding grape with neutral flavours that provides a solid base to blend with other varieties. Chardonnay’s distinctive body and rich flavours are most commonly expressed in varietal wines, but when these two varietals are blended in hot climates, they tend to show ripe stonefruit flavours and nectarine notes.
