Vinous Reverie Notes
Slovenian winemaker Aleks Simcic is a recognized master of Chardonnay. While his family’s more expensive, single estate wines are some of the best in Europe, GIO offers an opportunity to enjoy an affordable made with the same, exacting standard. With 1/3 of the juice aged on the lees and in the barrel, the wine has a crisp, Old World style with a touch of lush, viscous body. Notes of green apple, lime, and baked pear make for a delightful weave, designed to satisfy those desiring a "new generation" Chardonnay. Tasting Notes: Yellow with gold reflections. Citrus, ripe peaches, melon, butter, vanilla, hazelnuts, and bread crust. Rich, but fresh and crisp. Elegant texture, with marked minerality.
