Giant Steps Yarra Valley Pinot Noir
Giant Steps is a privately owned, estate based, Yarra Valley grower and winemaker that has forged a reputation for delivering some of Australia’s most consistent, over-performing, single vineyard varietal wines. The new Yarra Valley range of wines is made from hand-picked fruit from the estate vineyards. Producing a range of Giant Steps wines using fruit blended from across the estate has been many years in discussion. These wines were born from a desire to produce a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of Giant Steps quality, which are expressive of the regional characteristics of the Yarra Valley rather than a single site.
Alcohol Volume: 13.5%
Tasting Notes: This wine is very much a sum of its parts, with perfumed cherry characters coming from the Sexton Vineyard, Campari notes from Applejack and Tarraford's mocha and cocoa earthiness shining through. It has vibrant red and blue fruits but a lovely underlying earthiness, with white mushrooms, truffles, savoury spice, forest floor and must stick. A beautifully elegant wine with breadth, structure and viscosity on the palate
Style: Light Bodied
Food Pairing: Chicken, Turkey
