De Iuliis Chardonnay 2017
This is delicious because of its relaxed, fruity poise. It doesn’t try to hard to stiffen things up with oak and reductive tension. Ample stone fruits. Perfectly ripe in their plumpness. A gentle swathe of oak for direction across the palate. Vanilla cream. Generous, but far from fat. Intense of flavour; persistent in its length. Dig it.
