2015 CHARDONNAY, Lusatia Park Vineyard, Giant Steps. Yarra Valley, Aus.
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Yarra Valley is the leading 'cool climate' area in Australia for both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Lusatia Park is a 47 acres vineyard, planted in 1985, in the upper section (at 220m). It's a particularly cool site, giving a long ripening period and complex wines as a result.
Grape Variety: Chardonnay, fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak (25% new). No malolactic fermentation.
Producer: Phil Sexton started both Innocent Bystander (now sold) 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: 4 years old and still so pure and fresh. Beautiful expression of modern new world Chardonnay.
