Chardonnay

The diversity of Chardonnay makes it one of the most popular varieties of the world: it provides wines for all tastes, and "reflects" the terroir (ecosystem) of each region to such an extent that it demonstrates significant differences in flavour and aroma. The Chardonnay came to the Balkans, particularly in Croatia and arrived in France during the Roman Empire, while it seems that it owns its spread to the monks.
In Greece, Chardonnay is grown throughout the country from Macedonia to Crete, with the soil, the microclimate and the different cultivation methods determining to a great extend the type and quality of the finished product. It ahs a rich aromatic potential, with characteristic acidity and rich mouth.
