Giant Steps Wombat Creek Vineyard Chardonnay 2019


A wonderfully fresh line of acidity gives this wine some real class, age worthiness and will most likely deliver some fairly strong scores once the critics get hold of it. Ripe fruit but not fat or clumsy in any way. There is a nice big whack of that pink grapefruit note that is common in wines from this part of Yarra Valley and the palate has a supple almost satin like texture about it. Flavours roll around your mouth a persist for quite a long while. 100% hand-picked. Whole bunch pressed, indigenous fermentation in French oak puncheons. 2 puncheons went through spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Maturation for 10 months in new and used French oak – 20% new, 80% older. New oak was Taransaud and D&J.
