//Chardonnay, White Wine, Wine Region, Yarra Valley/Giant Steps 2023 Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Giant Steps 2023 Yarra Valley Chardonnay


Our Chardonnay is a blend of our vineyard sites across the Yarra Valley, made using 100% hand picked fruit from our meticulously maintained estate vineyards. The wines are produced with wild ferments, gravity-flow winemaking techniques and minimal fining and filtration. This approach produces highly expressive wines, true to the regional characteristics of the Yarra Valley.


Vintage Notes: 2023 was a small, high-quality vintage in the Yarra Valley. The season was defined by a cool Spring, a mild growing season, cool nights, and medium to high rainfall. 2023 was one of the coolest and latest harvests on record, with our first pick starting two and a half weeks later than the previous average. The grapes in 2023 had lovely fruit concentration with bright natural acidities.

Vinification: All Giant Steps fruit is 100% hand-picked. The Chardonnay grapes are chilled overnight before they are whole bunch pressed the following morning. The juice is immediately transferred into 500L French oak puncheons. 15% of the oak is new, while the remaining 85% is seasoned. The juice is fermented naturally using indigenous yeast over 10 days, finishing with lots of stirring at the end of ferment. Around 10% of the batches go through malolactic fermentation. The wines are then sulphured and kept on lees in barrel until October, when they are blended and bottled.
