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