Giocato, Chardonnay
Chardonnay

 

Tasting Notes: It is hard to imagine a site in the world more conducive to scintillating white wines than coastal Slovenia, just 40 meters over the border from Collio, Italy. And few winemakers can conjure more expressiveness, precision, and personality from their soil than Aleks Simcic, a true marvel. His Giocato collection of wines has been universally well received, and this freshly-styled Chardonnay is a perfect complement. With notes of Pacific Blossom apple, lychee, citrus, warm croissant and sea salt, it is delight in a glass. Simcic does it again!
