My desert island grape variety, chardonnay is planted globally and is a brand unto itself. The North American consumer equated the word chardonnay to literally mean white wine, a testament to its ease to grow, market and… glug glug! However, chardonnay is still suffering from the bad rap it earned during its period of explosive growth in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Nonetheless, chardonnay is the fruit source of the world’s finest white wines.
