Giant Steps wombat Creek Chardonnay 2019

96 POINTS - JAMES HALLIDAY!

At 420m Wombat Creek is the highest vineyard site in the Yarra Valley, with a gentle northeast-facing slope of volcanic red soil. The vinification sees the wine bottled by gravity, not fined and only coarse-filtered, as is the case with its siblings. Although the acidity is not adjusted (like its siblings), it feels softer and fruitier, pink grapefruit at work." - James Halliday

 

"The One That Feels Racy.
Tight and lean, skeletal and firm, barely there citrus characters, mineral water, saline notes. Whips across the palate in a green, cool, almost minty breath of precise and ultra fine, needle thrust of chardonnay. Blink and you’ll miss it kind of style but has the finesse and tension many seek from Australia’s uber chardonnay revolution. Despite its attempt at acid-forged finesse, there’s just a lick or a breath of yeasty nuttiness in there too. Nicely done in its style, where laser-like precision is the motif." - Mike Bennie, Wine Front
