About The Wine

The 2017 Giant Steps Single Vineyard releases are one of the most impressive explorations of the influence of site that Australian wine has seen in recent memory. Pinot Noir. One clone (MV6). One region (Yarra Valley). One epic winemaker (Steve Flamsteed). One unbelievable flight of wines to try side by side.

On the Sexton vineyard, Giant Steps says, "the Sexton Vineyard is in one of the most revered pockets of the Valley..." and this release does not disappoint.

Take a bow Steve Flamsteed and team, these wines are a remarkable achievement.

The Wine Front

"Ripe cherry, red berry, faint meatiness, rose hip tea. Sets itself off on a darker, fuller path for pinot. Plush in the palate, dark chocolate and amaro, red berries, fine bitterness to finish with a smudge more bitter-dark chocolate. Mouthwatering, hunger-setting stuff. Fuller figured here. Breathy even. Nice though. Real nice. The ‘generous one’." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
