Goundrey Unwooded ChardonnayWay back in my early wine drinking days, I use to drink a lot of Chardonnay, I have no idea why.  I think it was some douche bag think, but I think as my taste and knowledge matured, so did my understanding of wines.

There is some differences between Chardonnay and Unwooded Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety used to make white wine. It originated in the Burgundy wine region of eastern France, but is now grown wherever wine is produced, from England to New Zealand.

A: “Unwooded” is the rather awkward word coined in Australia (at least that is where it seems to have first appeared) to indicate a wine that has not been fermented or aged in oak barrels. Sometimes “unoaked” is used to mean the same thing, almost always in reference to white wines, particularly chardonnays.

Basically it means unoaked or unwooded is wine that has never seen the inside of an oak barrel,

I like to try lots of different things these days, so getting a bottle of Goundrey Homestead 2015 – Unwooded Chardonnay is no big thing.  There is a big difference between a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay though, you can read about it at Wine Folly in this article Sauvignon Blanc vs Chardonnay.
