About The Wine
Steve Flamsteed and crew have gone south to uncover a different style of Pinot; a layered and powerful one with fruit sourced from southern Tasmania.
Coming from a single vineyard, and trucked and sailed across the Bass Strait direct to the Yarra overnight. Made with a variety of tactics - some whole bunch, some whole berry, fermenting in both oak and stainless - you'll find a much deeper and broodier style of Pinot here.
Lots of dark fruit flavours, firm tannin on the sides and a good kick of acidity - serious quality all around and still expresses that signature Giant Steps style. Cellaring preferred...
