2023 Giant Steps Chardonnay Yarra Valley

From: $39.00

2023 Giant Steps Chardonnay Yarra Valley – This year we see a complex blend from the following vineyards; Sexton, Tarraford, Applejack, Primavera and Wombat Creek Vineyards.

2023 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 lower than average which led to a long slow ripening period and great concentration of flavours and natural acidity.

All Giant Steps fruit is 100% hand-picked. The Chardonnay grapes are chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed lightly into 500L French oak puncheons, 15% new, 85% old. The juice then ferments on full solids with wild yeasts. 10% of the barrels went through a spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The wine stayed in barrel until October when it was racked, chilled and bottled.

Ready for immediate enjoyment and over the next 5+ years. Try matching with roast crispy skin chicken, preserved lemon and roast garlic.
