More Top Chardonnay Wines – New World

By | July 14, 2015


New World Chardonnays have long established a name for themselves in the worldwide theatre. Further to my review of best Chardonnay wines here, I am further reviewing wines from the vast selection available. 

As a big quantity of excellent Chardonnays are produced in Australia, I have reviewed them separately here. See my review of some more of the top Chardonnays from the New World hereunder.

All wines have been rated, see details of how the rating is done here.

What do the ratings mean?

Score Explanation
95–100 A classic great wine
90–94 An outstanding wine of superior character and style
85–89 A very good wine with special qualities
80-84 A good solid, well-made wine
75–79 A mediocre wine, drinkable but may have minor flaws
50–74 Not recommended

Not available for the moment

Previous reviewed wines are not available anymore and I will add new wines as they become available with my merchant again.

If you have any questions please feel free to leave them in the comment box below and I will come back to you within 24 hours.

    Hi Jerry,
    It’s a nice website about wines, you certainly know a lot about wines and I am sure wine lovers would enjoy reading your post and reviews about different wines from all over the world. You have beautiful photos and include good information that wine lovers want to know, how good the wines are by rating each one of them. Well done. Maria

      Hi Maria, yes it is my intention to find the best Chardonnays world wide and review them all on my website. In that way, people will get a feel of what Chardonnays and how many, are on offer! Cheers, Jerry

    Great article on new world wines. I’m more of a red drinker myself but I know enough to know that new world wines have taken over the more commercial market.
    European wines have gotten much to complex – it’s all about the taste at the end of the day regardless of the name/price.
    I love the way you can find an excellent new world option for under £10 ( I’m in the UK! ) in the local supermarket – compared to the inflated prices on the vinegar tasting French options!!!

      Hi Chris, the New World countries market their wines with the grape prominently on the bottle, whereas Old World countries tend not to bother. Marketing wise this gives New World countries an advantage. I would rather buy by the grape then by a Chateau I do not know. French Chardonnays from the Chablis area tend to be more acidic because of the cooler climate the grape grows in. Try a Meursault or Puligny-Montrachet, which are located in the Cote d’Or and you would be better off. Cheers, Jerry

    Hey, Jerry

    Some very good information here regarding top Chardonnay wines 🙂 I knew nothing about the different ratings until you just explained them to me, and thanks for sharing the notes too for each bottle of wine you have listed.

    This is a great site for true Chardonnay lovers!

    Cheers! Neil

      Thanks Neil, Although there are different rating systems (all evidently coming to the same results), I find this the most accurate and practical one. I have also a section that teaches you how to rate them yourself. Cheers, Jerry
