Vinography Images: Ripe Chardonnay

Ripe Chardonnay
I’ve made it my mission to try to eat as many different types of ripe wine grapes off the vine as possible. Mostly because I’m curious about the difference between how they taste as grapes versus as finished wines (the answer is: very different). These Chardonnay grapes from Itata look perfectly munchable the day or so before they are going to be harvested. Itata is one of Chile’s three most southerly wine regions, and is actually known not for Chardonnay, but for its plantings of Muscat of Alexandria. — Alder Yarrow
