De Iuliis Chardonnay 2011

The onset of the warmer months had me sipping on this to quench my thirst after a warm spring day.

Some great wines coming out of this stable at the moment and the ease of drinkability presented here suited my needs perfectly.

Fleshy peach, stonefruit and almond aromas kicked things off. The palate is weighted well although I felt the mid palate went missing for a small period. Flavours were clean and refreshing. The wine spent time in French Oak and this added to the flavour profile, but the oak certainly didn't steal the show.

I was pretty happy with it only to be hit with creme brulee flavours right at the end. That caught me by surprise, and a very welcome surprise it was indeed. Yum!

Well priced for $20.
