About The Wine
The Giant Steps Pinot Noir is the entry point to Phil Sexton & Steve Flamsteed's highly acclaimed wine range.
Flamsteed is considered one of the modern masters of Yarra winemaking and with Giant Steps a solo operation now, you can see him at the height of his powers.
This is a superb entry point into the world of premium Yarra Pinot Noir. It's made with a portion of whole bunches and the meticulous attention to detail for which Flamsteed has become renowned.
The 2019 version also includes a splash of their Pinot Noir from the Tosq vineyard in Central Otago giving the wine a little more power and grunt. If you want to get familiar with this stellar producer, this is the best place to start.
