"S" Slatnik Venezia Giulia Chardonnay Tocai Friulano 2021

At first it reminded me of a Normandy craft cider. Then I poured some in my glass and the colour struck me. It's orangey and clearly turbid. Not your casual chardonnay Sunday evening pour. The nose is verrrryyy complex, pear, apple, honey, elderflower, white pepper, some slight apricot touch and some yeasty notes too (?). The palate is great too, good acid drive, pear and apple, honey, good width, soft mouthfeel that turns into a tannic wall in the rear that caresses the tongue before powering a multi-layered finish with honey, apricot, apple, pear, a savoury, salty touch. Wow this is wild. It's absolutely not the same wine nor the same tastes and varietals but this reminds to some extent of Joly's wines from la Coulée de Serrant. Extremist in the approach somehow. These guys will die on that hill with their ideas. — 6 days ago

The Joly reference is a good one.

@Jay Kline it struck me like an evidence, eventhough the wines have nothing in common 🤷🏻‍♂️

Oxidized, nutty as usual - with a beautiful floral undertone. Acid to hold it up. Love these wines — 2 months ago

Brought to an outdoor afternoon lunch on a hot and humid day. Behaved like an air conditioner. Tremendously refreshing and bright. A wonderful accompaniment to a chicken Caesar .  — 21 days ago

I was just reading about Friuli whites, so I grabbed my own this weekend, too. Great timing.

Pop n pour.
Open and seductive on the nose.
On the palate this is still stubborn and tannic at the moment, Needs more time.

Skin contact. Choke full of chalky minerality. Intense yet nicely textured palate. A bit astringent on the finish. — 11 days ago

Not your average pinot grigio. Ton of energy. So much minerality. Excellent alongside seafood and the grand canal in Venice. — a month ago
