Single Vineyard Chardonnay uit een fantastisch jaar. "Marries creaminess and lemony freshness with a flinty tension giving it a wonderful energy on the focused full-bodied palate." (James Suckling, 94/100)

'Rijkdom, kracht, vitaliteit, mineraliteit en lengte'

Chardonnay van de Tarraford Vineyard, in 1998 aangeplant nabij het plaatsje Tarrawarra. Het is de laagst gelegen wijngaard van het domein en daarmee potentieel de warmste en dat levert normaal gesproken een wijn op met meer vulling en rijkdom dan Sexton. In het koele oogstjaar 2021, met z'n langzame en gelijkmatige rijping, wordt een ander potentieel van de wijngaard aangeboord en biedt de Tarraford Chardonnay naast rijkdom en kracht vooral ook vitaliteit, mineraliteit en lengte. James Suckling verwoordt het als volgt: "This Yarra Valley chardonnay marries creaminess and lemony freshness with a flinty tension giving it a wonderful energy on the focused full-bodied palate. Positive tannins anchor it at the long, positively dry finish." (94/100)

I met with Steve Flamsteed and new Giant Steps winemaker Mel Chester last week to taste through the 2021 Single Vineyard releases and wow, what a range of wines. Everything was excellent but this Tarraford was really up and about on the day. I’ll post my chardonnay reviews in order of altitude or ‘meters above sea level’. Tarraford is the lowest of them, and each from there is about 50 metres higher. Sweet oak into white stonefruit, citrus and apple, grapefruit. Powerful from the outset. Hand picked, whole bunch pressed, full solids for all of the single vineyard releases. A bit of mlf for all of them too. This is in impeccable – not to mention incredible – shape. Controlled. Powerful. Tarraford should be the most rich, for site and aspect, but it’s so taut, almost salty in its savouriness. Cracking wine. The ‘loudest’ of the single vineyards in that it brings the flavour but simultaneously so very, very good.

The 2021 Tarraford Vineyard Chardonnay comes from the Tarraford Vineyard—it is the most northerly vineyard in the collection and is planted to the P58 clone, planted in the 1980s. The fruit was originally intended as sparkling base and was being sold to Chandon. The fruit now goes solely toward table wine Chardonnay, and in this case, we are able to see for potential in the glass than merely sparkling base. This is a south-facing vineyard in a warmer area in the Yarra, which brings an attractive combination of streamlined linearity and a fine, mineral, nutty, briney character. In the mouth, the wine cascades across the palate, leaving a trail of white flowers, pink grapefruit and the faintest sense of caper brine through the finish. Very cool.

The warmest site of the 4 Giant Steps single-vineyard chardonnays, but planted on a south-facing slope in Tarrawarra. As with all of them, this was whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented 15% new French puncheons). A fuller, bright, green gold. Quite restrained with aromas of stone fruits, oatmeal and a little wet rock. I like both the intensity and restraint on the palate and this may, paradoxically, need the longest of the 4 single-vineyard 2021 chardonnays to open up.
