Giant Steps Chardonnay Sexton Vineyard 2005

Giant Steps Chardonnay Sexton Vineyard 750ml 2005     
Sku: 17811

Located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges, alongside the vineyards of Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills, the Sexton vineyard is exposed and demanding. Being well up the slopes, topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Vigoir and bunch yields set naturally low in this environment, facilitating a low intervention approach to what is otherwise hand tended viticulture. Biodynamic vineyard management principles are being introduced with the purpose of further distinguishing the site and improving grape and wine quality.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Oct 2007)
The 2005 Chardonnay ?Sexton Vineyard? was aged in 30% new oak with no malolactic fermentation. It is medium-straw colored with aromas of apple, pear, and walnuts and a hint of tropical fruits in the background. Crisp with elevated acidity, enough to restrain some of the mid-palate fruit, it still offers tasty drinking although the finish is slightly clipped.
