Giant Steps Tarraford Chardonnay 2022

A star producer from the Yarra Valley, the already sensational quality of Giant Steps rose to benchmark levels following the acquisition of the producer by global wine company Kendall-Jackson. With a track record of pairing the best sites with the best winemakers, Giant Steps is now a producer making Pinot Noir & Chardonnay of international renown. 

The warmest site among Giant Steps' four single-vineyard chardonnays, though planted on a cool, south-facing slope in Tarrawarra. Whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented in French puncheons (25% new) with 10% malolactic fermentation. An engaging and lovely wine. Opens with subtle scents of pink grapefruit, orange blossom and coriander seeds. Builds nicely on the gently textured, saline and structured palate before finishing zesty and long. The sort of wine that begs you to take another sip. - 97pts James Halliday, Wine Companion
