Superb wine, delicious drinking.
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.
