About The Wine
Wombat Creek is the newest addition to the Giant Steps repertoire of Single Vineyard Chardonnays. The debut release is simply smoking.
It's a tightly wound, almost nervy style of Chardonnay. Focus is the through line of the 2017 Chardonnay releases from Steve Flamsteed and none show more focus than the Wombat Creek.
This is a blistering wine, one for the lovers of the leaner, energised modern Yarra Valley Chardonnay style. Exquisite work from this master of the Yarra.
About Giant Steps
Giant Steps is a premium Yarra Valley outfit founded by Phil Sexton located in the in the township of Healesville.
