2021 Giant Steps Sexton Vineyard Chardonnay Yarra Valley

From: $72.00

2021 Giant Steps Sexton Vineyard Chardonnay Yarra Valley – Steve Flamsteed is at it again with another rocking vintage for his 2021 wines.

Located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges, the Sexton Vineyard is exposed and demanding. Being on the higher slopes, topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Bunch yields set naturally low in this environment, resulting in intensely flavoured fruit with high skin to juice ratio.

2021 was a terrific vintage for both vineyard quality and quantity. They had a wet spring followed by a healthy amount of sunshine and some well-timed rain in January, leading to large green healthy canopies. The overall temperature during the growing season was cooler than average which led to a long slow ripening period and great concentration of flavours and natural acidity.

Lusciously fruit driven, complex and delightfully unique, this Yarra Valley Chardonnay has loads of personality. There’s savoury smokiness and fruit flavours ahoy, including white stone fruits, apricot, apple, lime and lemon, all with a grapefruit backbone. Nutty flavours appear as the wine opens up giving it complexity and depth. This is a stylish wine hailing from a lineage of high achievers amongst wine judges.
