2012 CHARDONNAY, Tarraford, Giants Steps. Yarra, Australia
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Yarra Valley is the leading 'cool climate' area in Australia for both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Tarraford Vineyard is a 21 acre site, currently being converted to biodynamic farming
Grape Variety: Chardonnay fermented with wild yeasts and matured for 11 months in French oak (25% new oak)
Producer: Phil Sexton runs Innocent Bystander and Giant Steps from the same winery, using the latter label for his best single vineyard sites. Winemaker is the talented Steve Flamsteed
Old Bridge Rating: Many modern Aussie Chardonnays go too far - too lean, too zesty, not enough richness or charm. This treads the line perfectly - creamy but elegant
