About

Phil Sexton of Giant Steps loves this vineyard. The utmost care is being taken in the farming of it, now using some biodynamic principals to farm it. In a cracking vintage like 2015, the vines sing. This is a blistering Chardonnay. A powerhouse from the Yarra. The handpicked fruit was ferment wild followed by 2 months lees stirring, 11 months in 20% new oak and finally no filtration before going to bottle. Simple yet intelligent winemaking, Flamsteed doing just enough to let the fruit show its best. Campbell Mattinson gave this 95+ points commenting that "It turns the power on but is long and gorgeous..." It's a stunning Chardonnay from one of the great sites in the Yarra.

What it Tastes Like

"This is rich, fine, seamless, quartz-like. It’s complex in an integrated way; no bells, whistles or alarms but plenty going on regardless. Grapefruit and white peach, spent matches buried into the fruit, a smoky mineralogy. It turns the power on but is long and gorgeous – and it’ll be better again ion 12-24 months." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
