About The Wine

This is a new wine in the Giant Steps Single Vineyard series, and what a debut release it is too!

From an older planting of Pinot Noir in Gladysdale comes this deft and harmonious wine. The fruit was originally intended for sparkling, though in the hands of the master Steve Flamsteed, an immaculate table wine has come to fruition.

This is one of the more limited wines of the 2017 Giant Steps Single Vineyard release and with a 95 point score from Mike Bennie, it won't last long.

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.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Pretty, voluminous perfume, loaded with sweet red berry fruits, spiked with green herbs, undergrowth, briar, touch of truffle/mushroom. Silky in the palate, great volume of flavour, squeakiness through the finish, mouthwatering too. Has good concentration, mouth perfume even, floats through its long finish. Superb wine, delicious drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"From the Upper Yarra Valley (the highest altitude vineyard in the Yarra Valley), 20% whole bunches on the base of the vat, the remainder destemmed on top, minimal plunging thus maximum carbonic maceration, 9 months maturation, gravity bottled. Like all the Giant Steps Pinots, not fined or filtered. Light, bright crimson-purple; red flowers and fruits with a continuous whole bunch-shot text of savoury, earthy, foresty notes threaded through the red fruits." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Compaion)
