About

If you love your cool climate Shiraz, then we have a winner for you here.

Under the guidance of winemaking wizard Steve Flamsteed and with access to many of the Yarra Valley’s finest vineyards, the Giant Steps juggernaut is becoming an unstoppable force. The suite of 2015 Pinots and Chardonnays were spectacular, but this wonderful 2015 Syrah is right up there with them.

The fruit is hand-picked from the Tarraford, Sexton and Lonestar Creek vineyards. As with everything Flamsteed puts his name to the treatment in the winery is very gentle and unobtrusive, with wild yeasts, open fermenters and older large format oak use.

The resulting wine is a beauty. Pure and precise, detailed and complex, perfectly pitched.

In his 95 point review Campbell Mattinson called it “a belter” and a “must buy”, and it’s hard to argue. If cool climate, Rhone-inspired Syrah is your thing then there is joy to be had here.

What It Tastes Like

“Cherry plum, crushed dry leaves, the most blessed slow-crash of tannin, herbage and black pepper, all carried along on a river of silk. Eucalypt and clove characters play side roles. The sleeves of this wine are folded immaculately. It’s neat, tidy, contained. But it’s pure and beautiful; it sits in the glass with its heart wide open.” - Campbell Mattinson
