It's generally regarded as one of the best and most popular grapes in the world. The area that this grape is grown on almost equals that reserved for cultivating Rieslings. In Germany, Chardonnay occupies around 1,100 hectares, which represents around 1.1% of the total vineyard area, it is cultivated on around 0.5% of the land overseen by the Winzerverein Deidesheim. The wine possesses a fresh, fruity and sometimes racy character, its varietal personality is substantial and lasting.
