About the Wine
This delightful white wine created by Hardys is made in the Limestone Coast area of South Australia. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Accolade wines. William Hardy Chardonnay is a delicious wine, made from Shiraz/Syrah grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. Wonderful fruit-driven flavours for rich seafood, tasty chicken or spicy pork dishes.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
