Chardonnay is an interesting grape because on its own, it's not that interesting. Chardonnay is a chameleon of a grape, meaning that the way it tastes truly reflects where its grown and the winemaking techniques used once the grapes are picked. Winemakers often enjoy it because it's a sturdy grape, it has reliably high ripeness and it responds well to a variety of winemaking techniques. When you are talking about that rich and creamy style, most often the Chardonnay comes from a warmer climate, enjoys malo-lactic fermentation (making the acids soft) and spends some time in oak.
