Giant Steps Applejack Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  13794

Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, no additions, wild-fermented in French puncheons (20% new), matured for 8 months with stirring for the first month. A spotless bouquet and an elegant palate of great length. Stone fruits and melon are threaded through a faint gauze of acidity, oak barely seen. This is an exercise in balance, and the certainty of future greatness. Drink by: 2028. Special Value. Score - 96. (James Halliday,, Oct. 1, 2019)
