The perfect introduction to modern Yarra pinot.
About The Wine
The Giant Steps Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is the entry point to Phil Sexton & Steve Flamsteed's highly acclaimed wine range.
This is a superb entry point into the world of premium Yarra Pinot Noir, with fruit sourced from the Sexton, Applejack, Tarraford and Primavera vineyards. It's made with around 40% whole bunches and meticulous attention to detail, for which Flamsteed has become renowned. Unfined and unfiltered, too.
Aromatic red fruits, good refreshing mid palate and a light, earthy grip on the finish.
If you want to get familiar with this stellar Yarra Valley producer, this is the best place to start.
