Lean but flavoursome, if that is possible. Textural and intense but rapier-like through the finish. Needs time but has it going on. Citrus and stone fruit, steel and cedar. The most subtle of lactose notes. This will shine in time.

How's it taste?
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. Structured yet delicate, refined and super long on the palate. A great place to start if you want to get a feel for the Giant Steps Chardonnays.

Malty, lanolin, raw almond aromas, delicate, refined, subtle and beautifully balanced. Tastes quite different to a Gingin clone wine from, say, Margaret River. Intense, very fine and long and there's a gentle grip on the finish that helps cleanse the aftertaste. (200m altitude, Gingin clone)

Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
The personality of Sexton with volume turned up from the wet, cool 2020 year.Lemon-ginger tea scents and flavours, yuzu fruit, cumquat sweet-sour tang. Exotic citrus, hey? Flinty notes, some sizzling saline acidity in the core, slick, liquid spice cinnamon-clove oaky layering. A leaner style but not without flavour and vitality. Long and dart shaped then starburst of citrus tang to close. Good gear here.
