chard day

With International Chardonnay Day on May 27, we look at this great white, its rich history and how you can celebrate the occasion at Baci restaurant in Crown Casino. Chardonnay is the wine that arguably put Australia on the world stage. The full-bodied and oaked styles of the 1980s were known as sunshine in the glass, but this ubiquitous variety has evolved since those heady days.

International Chardonnay Day is celebrated on Thursday 27th of May and is gathering momentum in many wine-producing countries around the world. This is also a grape variety that allows growers and makers to put their stamp on it with their choice of techniques, all while still creating wines that reflect their site and regionality.

Come celebrate International Chardonnay Day at Baci restaurant and enjoy our Wickhams Road Yarra Valley Chardonnay.

If you look at the amazing reviews around this small Yarra Valley producer, one word pops up in almost every single one. Value.

From their elite 1er and Hoddles Creek Estate labels through to their Wickhams Road range, not an ounce of quality is compromised at any tier. This is consistently one of the country’s most excellent Chardonnays in its price range and this year is no different. This Wickhams Rd Chardonnay is forward, lively and balanced. Sourced from vineyards in Upper Yarra, namely Macclesfield and Woori Yallock. The Woori Yallock component gives some mid-palate weight, whilst the Macclesfield provides finesse and the long acid drive.
