2021 Giant Steps Wombat Creek Vineyard Chardonnay Yarra Valley

From: $60.00

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

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.

Wombat Creek Vineyard is the highest altitude vineyard in the Yarra Valley, making it an ideal location for the production of extreme cool climate wines. The vineyard was originally planted in 1988 with the intention of producing base wine for sparkling production but over the years has been gradually transitioned to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for table wine. The underlying ferrous (red) based volcanic soil and rock produce a distinctively soft yet long and firm palate that contrasts with the finer palates seen from the nearby Applejack Vineyard (basalt based volcanic).

Powerful and textured. Notes of stone fruits, apples and vanilla. In incredible form already with everything working seamlessly together. Soft creamy texture, balanced acidity and exceptional length.
