Celebrating 50 years of Chardonnay
April 5, 2022 @ 16:00 - 17:00
Celebrate 50 years of Australian Chardonnay and join us for a Conversation of Australia’s most iconic white wine.
This year marks the golden anniversary of Australian Chardonnay. With varietal labelled Chardonnay first produced back in 1972, now is the perfect time to revisit the story of Australian Chardonnay.
From the first vine cuttings in the 1830s to the big, buttery wines of the 1990s, to today’s regionally distinct, refined styles, Australian Chardonnay has come a long way. Its popularity may have waxed and waned over the years, but one thing’s for sure: Australian Chardonnay is a legend with a bright future.
Discover how Australian Chardonnay changed the world of wine, find out how the style has evolved, and why it’s such an exciting time for the variety.
Don’t miss this fascinating session, hosted by Wine Australia’s Mark Davidson, with guest speakers Oz Clarke and MaryAnn Worobiec. Mark, Oz and MaryAnn will discuss the evolution of Australian Chardonnay, its regional expressions and modern styles, whilst sharing their insights, experiences and plenty of stories.
