Giant Steps

Ocarina Gruyere Farm Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Made by one of Australia’s higher achieving Wine makers in Steve Flamsteed. This single Vineyard Chardonnay was fermented entirely in a clay egg vessel. It also had no malolactic and no fining or filtration. An experimental wine for Giant Steps but Steve must be happy with it as I understand he has ordered a few more Eggs. First impressions were of a Skinnsy handmade “natural “ Chardonnay. Only 100 x 6 bottle cases made Notes of mineral and pineapple juice. Very pure and fresh but lacks something. Expected more to be honest. Not for neophytes. — 15 days ago

Hoddles Creek Estate

1er Yarra ValleyChardonnay 2015

(Delectable management, another error! There are three duplicates for this in your database, each with slightly different wording. This is Hoddles Creek Estate 1er Yarra Valley Chardonnay. Also, consolidate ALL the duplicates, some of which are listed as Hoddles Creek and some as Hoddles Creek Estate!) This is a powerful chardonnay. Lots of concentrated fruit and a good serving of oak toastiness. Struck match. Thankfully it’s in balance, if not yet completely integrated. It really needs time, but it’s impressive now. Its best is yet to come. — 5 days ago

Fruit of The Sky Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Juicy red berries, eucalyptus, intense floral notes. Super funky, but yet so balanced. Playful. Like butterfies in your belly, it’s like a crazy romance. One of the best I drank in 2017! — 13 days ago

Quintet Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1999

My wife and I first had this wine close to 20 years ago and have tasted a few bottles through the years - it does not disappoint on any level! Better balance than any Bordeaux, better fruit than anything out of Napa amazing finish and not overly oaky, tannic or smithing you find today out of the Australian greats. This wine is my number ONE - it was 20 years ago and opening a 1999 tonight just affirms that!!
