John McDonnell, from Wine Australia in Ireland is putting on a Chardonnay tasting next week.
The ABC (anything but chardonnay) brigade seem to have quietened down of late. And for good reason. No longer (if ever) sunshine in a glass, Chardonnay has been undergoing a bit of an Aussie renaissance. Cooler vineyard sites in places like the Mornington Peninsula, higher up in the McClaren Vale and a more sensitive approach to winemaking have contributed to a lighter, fresher, more alive style of wine.
Jacobs Creek chief winemaker Bernard Hickin is presenting the wine tasting next Wednesday.
Bernard is hugely respected in the Australian winemaker community, has extensive winemaking experience and describes wine in a really good way. I had the pleasure of interviewing him a few years ago so I heartily recommend you head along.
