Professional Wine Reviews for Giant Steps Chardonnay 2016

Rated 93 by Wine & Spirits
Steve Flamsteed blends fruit from the Sexton, Tarraford and Applejack vineyards, fermenting it without added yeasts and moving the wine by gravity. While this wine is not as distinctly mineral as the Sexton Vineyard Chardonnay (also recommended here), its fruit complexity is fascinating. It’s almost red in flavor, hinting at persimmon and the red skin of a peach, with an herbal note, like lemon verbena, and a spicy floral scent of jasmine adding to the wine’s vibrant approach. Juicy and firm, the sense of luscious fruit is what lasts. Delicious.

Additional Information on Giant Steps Chardonnay 2016

Winery Giant Steps

Region: Victoria

The south westerly region of Victoria in Australia has long been an important wine region, responsible for the production of many of Australia's most interesting and characterful wines. The climate of the region is ideal for growing a wide range of both red and white wine grapes, and wineries in Victoria are renowned for their openness to experimentation with both new techniques and methods, as well as a wide range of grape varietals. Despite there being over six hundred wineries operating in Victoria, it is only the third most productive wine region in Australia. This is due to the fact that the wineries of the region have a dedication to quality over quantity which is unmatched elsewhere in the country, making Victoria a region full of fascinating surprises, and some seriously excellent examples of Australian wine.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
