About The Wine

The Applejack Pinot Noir is from the cooler climes of the Yarra Valley. A cornerstone of the Giant Steps range, the Applejack vineyard thrives at the higher altitude. The wine is replete with spice, perfume and finesse.

With a healthy amount of whole bunches and a splash of new oak, the wine has plenty of oomph - it really is the complete package. The 2017 Giant Steps wines are all of very high quality. Without a doubt benchmarks for the region.

There is not much to go around in 2017, and Applejack is often the fastest to go. If you love Pinot Noir, do not hesitate over these releases.

About Giant Steps

Giant Steps is a premium Yarra Valley outfit founded by Phil Sexton located in the in the township of Healesville. Since appointing Steve Flamsteed as his head winemaker and eventual business partner, Sexton and Flamsteed have developed a reputation for producing some of the region's finest examples of single vineyard wines.

From the vineyard to the final bottled wine, every aspect of the Giant Steps process is geared towards making truly world-class wines. The focus is on what the Yarra does best - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz/Syrah and Bordeaux-variety blends - and showcasing the unique terroirs of some of the region's finest vineyards.

For three years running, Wine and Spirit Magazine have named them as one of the Top 100 wineries in the world, and Flamsteed capped off an amazing run by being named Gourmet Traveller Wine's 2016 Winemaker of the Year, another jewel in the Giant Steps crown. Their ultra modern cellar door is one of the must-visit experiences for any wine tourist stopping through the Yarra Valley.

The Wine Front

"Acid driven, light and fragrant style, has that sense of sleekness from fine pinot tannins yet is tightly wound, coiled and precise as it rolls through the palate. Red currants, cranberry, smoke and sweet earth to sniff on. Savoury edged red fruit to taste. Balanced, lithe, very finely wrought. Such elegance, and, importantly, incredible sense of energy in the wine. Now we can use the word outstanding." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
