Last Wednesday evening, we attended a very interesting wine dinner at Flutes @ National Museum organized by the Appetite magazine. Kenny Leong, Wine Editor at Appetite magazine, and his team tasted about 100 Chardonnay before picking their top 10 for the night's blind tasting.
Chardonnay is the most popular and diverse white wine grape and it is grown in virtually every wine-producing region in the world. It is one of the principal grapes used to produce Champagne and is second, only behind Pinot Meunier in plantings within Champagne. If you are new to white wine and are confused with the different white wine varietals, chances are you would be served a glass of Chardonnay when you order a glass of House white wine in a restaurant. That’s how common it is.
