Giant Steps Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2021 is only showing the barest inkling of its potential. Revisiting in 6 to 12 months time or even longer will show so much more. And it will be worth the wait.
Aromas of mealy nutty notes and apricot fill the glass. and then it hits the palate and it is classic Yarra Valley Chardonnay in all its glory.
Steve Flamsteed knows how to make wine and if this is even 10% of what the Single Vineyards are going to look like, then prepare yourselves for some great 2021 wine.
The palate is mainly lemon and citrus (hints of pink grapefruit) then peaches. As time goes on these peaches will flesh out and the citrus stonefruit balance will be complete and might I say "glorious". The finish is beautifully dry and completely in balance with the slightest hint of oranges. I give it a rating of Yum and suggest not drinking for six months.
Buy some, you will not regret this.
