What a belter. Phwoar.
About The Wine
The Applejack vineyard has long supplied the fruit for the most sought-after of the Giants Steps Pinot Noirs, now the same may be true for Flamsteed's Chardonnays.
The first release of the wine came from a hunch that there might be something special about the fruit from this block in 2017, it would seem that Flamsteed's hunch was right.
Mike Bennie awarded this 95+ points, the highest of all the exquisite Giant Steps Chardonnays from 2017. Stocks are limited and this won't be around for long.
