Professional Wine Reviews for Giant Steps Chardonnay 2017

Rated 94 by James Suckling
100 BEST WINES UNDER $30 (2018) - Simply put, this is one of the best value Australian chardonnays being made. It has a magic marriage of well-judged complexity with grapefruit, peaches, lemons and nectarines wrapped in a gun flinty and hazelnutty shroud of complexity. The palate merges pastry-like smoothness and concentration with electrifying acid freshness. Drink now.
Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
Complex, starting with a core of crisp Meyer lemon and grapefruit zest flavors, and hitting its stride on the finish, where delicate details of lanolin, green tea and peppery white flowers emerge, lingering effortlessly on the weightless frame. Drink now through 2023. 25 cases imported.

Additional Information on Giant Steps Chardonnay 2017

Winery Giant Steps

Region: Victoria

Victoria is a fascinating region for lovers of Australian wines, and consistently provides plenty of exciting and pleasant surprises for wine drinkers around the world. The six hundred or so wineries which operate in this cool and coastal south western region of Australia have always had a dedication for quality over quantity, and a reputation for openness to experimentation unmatched elsewhere in the country. As such, the range of red and white grape varietals which grow exceedingly well there result in a wide variety of wines, of many different styles. Amongst the finest are the Old World style wines made from classic French grapes such as Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as many fascinating fortified wines and dessert wines.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
