Giant Steps Chardonnay 2021, Yarra Valley
Five stars Halliday, Top 100 wineries of the world four years running and Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the Year - yep this is only part of Giant Steps dossier. The variety responsible is a toss between the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay - we’re claiming victory for Chardonnay! Expect nothing but Yarra Valley magnificence here.
Hand-picked, part fermented with wild yeast, some whole bunch, matured for 12 months in French barriques (25% new). Excellent colour, deep and clear; all the plum and cherry all-sorts you could wish for, discretely supplied by fine tannins and oak.
