Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
Crafted by Jimmy Watson winner Julian Langworthy, this wine displays notes of stone fruit, oyster shell and spice. The palate is textured and complex with rich flavours backed by vibrant acidity. Well-balanced and elegant resulting in a classic Margaret River Chardonnay.

"There is such freshness and vitality to this new vintage release chardonnay from Giant Steps, which is a blend of the Sexton, Tarraford and Applejack vineyards. Looking swish with its new label, the wine has beautiful citrus top notes of lemon and grapefruit, with some underlying clotted cream. There is excellent expression the entire length of the palate, plus texture and gentle fruit. It is still looking a little primary but will bloom as the months' tick by. Though it is still mighty satisfying to drink right now." Toni Paterson MW
