2016 Gi­ant Steps Lusa­tia Park Vine­yard Yarra Val­ley Chardon­nay

Halliday - - 100 New Notes -

Wild-fer­mented in French pun­cheons, 20% new, no bat­ton­age, ma­tured for 10 months. Gleam­ing straw-green; first tasted in Mar ’17. Un­ex­pect­edly, the fresh­ness and fo­cus is even greater now, the Up­per Yarra vi­brancy and length more in fo­cus, grape­fruit just in front of peach. Al­most in­evitably, the nat­u­ral acid­ity pro­vides the wine with ex­cep­tional length.
