2015 Slurp Chardonnay, Pays d’Oc IGP, France
The grapes for this Slurp Chardy though come from the Languedoc-Roussillon area of France, under the Pays d’Oc appellation.
It claims to be a natural wine, as the label suggests (see label images below): “Enjoy its ripe juicy flavors. Easily enjoyed anytime. Just a great wine for a great price. This wine hasn’t flown halfway around the world which is much better for the environment too. This wine is pure natural as well as gorgeous to drink.”
But how good is this 2015 Slurp Chardonnay ?
The answer is in the tasting notes:
Lemon-yellow color of medium intensity.
The nose is discrete, delicately floral, a touch of fresh hazelnut, and of zesty lemon.
On the palate, the wine feels dry, with a dominant acidity. But it’s not tangy thanks to a nice oily texture and good body.
Flavors are characterful, on primary fruit tones of citrus and floral notes. A rather powerful finish of leesy and nutty flavors.
A well-made dry Chardonnay that affirms the typicity of the grape in a fruit-driven, upfront enjoyable manner.
Good easy-to-drink and approachable white wine that is also easy to love for its non-complicated yet dry and relatively complex presence.
