Julia James Chardonnay 2016
Opici Wines has been rooted in world-class wines and spirits since 1913. Their private label Julia James is a tribute to the fifth generation of the Opici family, and also named for them. With grapes sourced from some of Northern California’s most prestigious regions, Julia James has a modern look and offers real value for California wine-loving consumers.
Ripe lemon in color, this Chardonnay has golden highlights in the glass. It offers a mix of fresh pear, apple, melon and citrus on the nose. There is a bright, juicy personality to go with exotic flavors of tropical fruits, vanilla, nectarine, and a hint of oak. Continuing to open up nicely in the glass, it has a creamy mid-palate and a clean, crisp finish. Julia James Chardonnay is a lovely match with salads, roasted chicken, and butter or cream sauced pasta dishes.
