Giant Steps Gruyere Farm Vineyard Ocarina Chardonnay 2018

Textural white of high interest and compelling drinkability – light chalkiness, faint stoney characters meshed to green apple, ripe citrus and white chocolate notes. So much going on.

Product Description

Textural white of high interest and compelling drinkability – light chalkiness, faint stoney characters meshed to green apple, ripe citrus and white chocolate notes. So much going on. The wine slips over the palate with ease, finds some good concentration of flavour, delivers inherent freshness. Dials up the chardonnay fruit character yet holds such essential purity then, again, that texture is such a charm and so unique. A wonderful expression. I’m in.

It’s great to see so many Australian makers this year embracing alternative techniques such as fermenting and maturing wine in big, ceramic, egg-shaped vessels. As the Giant Steps crew discovered, it can produce wonderful results. This wine, bottled unfined and unfiltered after a few months in the eggs, is ravishing: a thrilling tension occurs between citrusy, youthful fruit characters and a refined, textural maturity courtesy of the vessels. It will age well in the cellar, too.
