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.
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.
