Giant Steps, Tarraford Vineyard Chardonnay 2019
Subtle lemon and a hint of ginger are complemented by roasted hazelnut and a waft of smoky, flinty minerality. Crisp acidity provides this wine with very good freshness.
Wonderfully complex, layered Chardonnay that age beautifully and pair amazingly with food - decant, don't over-chill and serve with a good roast chicken.
Hand harvested and whole-bunch pressed, after which the juice was transferred to 500-litre French puncheons.
Spontaneous fermentation in oak with lees stirring only twice between May and June. No malolactic fermentation. The wine then spent eight months in French oak barrels - 20% new.
