Chardonnay * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Yarra Valley, Australia
Giant Steps has forged a reputation as one of Australia's most consistent, over-performing wineries. An elegant, refined and delicate Chardonnay that also has a voluptuous side. 2017 was an excellent vintage for the Valley - a cool, early summer meant harvest dates were three weeks later than the previous vintage, but the crop was evenly balanced with excellent acidity and ripe flavours. A classic Yarra character of lemon sorbet, white peach and nectarine underpinned with notes of marzipan and hazelnut. Crisp and refreshing with well-judged acid giving an added dimension. Drink to 2025.
