What Makes Chardonnay Buttery? Oak or No Oak?

Chardonnay is one of the most popular white grapes. It can range from crisp and acidic to creamy and buttery depending on factors such as the soils, oak or unoaked along with something called Malolactic Fermentation. In this video, I will explain the difference between oak and unoaked Chardonnay with tastes along with wine making processes.

 

Most people confused oak with MLF (Malolactic Fermentation) and assume that the "buttery" flavor they taste in Chardonnay is coming from the Oak. I explain what exactly it is you are tasting in this video and open your eyes to the world of Chardonnay that it's actually not the oak that makes it buttery. Cheers!
