Natalie Rose rated this wine as 100/100
This is an excellent Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley, Victoria's Sexton Vineyard. Giant Steps (2008). There is a nutty, creamy texture on this 13% abv wine (yaaay) that is a tertiary flavour from receiving judicious oak treatment -- a very enjoyable Chardonnay. - Community Wine Reviews
