About The Wine
The Sexton vineyard is owned by Phil Sexton, the founder of Giant Steps.
He purchased the property due to its location, tucked between some of the most famous estates in the Yarra Valley in the foothills of Coldstream, the site perfect for producing first-rate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The Sexton release may be the most deliciously drinkable of the Giant Steps Single Vineyard Chardonnay wines whilst in their youth.
It has an ease of drinking, inbuilt complexity and the promise of something more given time.
A great place to start if you want to get a feel for the Giant Steps Chardonnays.
