2017 Giocato GIO Chardonnay


Aleks Simčič ages about a third of the wine in French oak barrels for approximately a year. The rest of the wine is fermented in tank. The result is a wine that is crisp and fresh but with a touch of lusciousness to the texture. It's a seductive combination of clean, fruity flavors with deftly managed oak treatment. Expect baked pear, tangy nectarine, ripe citrus and a small, peck-on-the-cheek of oak. It's a tremendous value. It drinks far more expensive than its $16.98 bottle price suggests. If you love Chardonnay and are looking for richness and balance but are not always willing to pay the big bucks for Burgundy or California's top-shelf Chards, than this is a very good option!
