About

The Giant Steps Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is the entry point to Phil Sexton & Steve Flamsteed’s highly acclaimed wine range.

Flamsteed is considered one of the modern masters of Yarra winemaking and with Giant Steps a solo operation now, you can see him at the height of his powers.

This is a superb entry point into the world of premium Yarra Pinot Noir. It’s made with 35% whole bunches and the meticulous attention to detail for which Flamsteed has become renowned.

Campbell Mattinson rated the 2016 release 93 points, noting “It’s a pinot that creeps up on you; every time you come back to it, it reveals another positive.”

What It Tastes Like

“Maybe it doesn’t quite match the substance of the – exceptional – 2015 release but it’s a wine of prettiness, presence and persistence. This is a carefully pieced together pinot noir. It puts reduction to good use/effect; it places cranberries with red/black cherries to aid a general tanginess; it carries slips of green herbs but not so that the wine is defined by them. It’s a detailed wine, finely stitched, with a push of flavour-soaked tannin extending through the finish. The fruit is not overly sweet, but it’s ripe. It’s a pinot that creeps up on you; every time you come back to it, it reveals another positive.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
