Milijan Jelic, Chardonnay, 2011, Valjevo, white wine from Serbia

1 point

This wine is another attempt to adapt the taste of American Chardonnay, although the area Milijan Jelic makes wine is obviously somewhere else. It is in Serbia – which makes its interesting to taste, and since it isn’t cheap you would expect something special. Unfortunately, it isn’t interesting or surprising.

It is very golden in colour. It has a rather nice smell although not terribly special. The wine has recognizable quality but is a mixture of rather flat aromas. It is too sweet and I don’t think it is reasonable for this wine to have so much barrique – oaky – tones.

The labels looks a bit like the wine tastes….

Serve it very cold, then perhaps the sweetness won’t completely over some other undiscovered flavors.
