De Iuliis Limited Chardonnay 2019
Small quantities only, following a barrel cull. The best of the best, so to speak. Fine. Just nudging mid weight. A chiselled meld of oak, lees and a salty beam of acidity. Flinty without being overt, promoting flavours of oatmeal, apricot pith, nectarine, dried hay and nougat. A rapier-like finish of cut glass precision and impressive length.
Rating: 93 Points Special value
