Giant Steps is a privately owned, estate based, Yarra Valley grower and winemaker that has forged a reputation for delivering some of the Australia’s most consistent, over-performing, varietal wines. The Giant Steps Single Vineyard range is produced from the most site-expressive fruit off the best vineyards in great years. Their aim is to express in each wine the character of the site, grape and vintage, and this they achieve by meticulous work in the vineyard and minimum intervention in the winery. Head winemaker Steve Flamsteed and his team are making some of the best wines in Australia from these sites.
Vivid ruby red. The bouquet mingles spice-accented red fruit and floral scents with dried flowers, anise and wood smoke. An undercurrent of zesty minerality gives focus and lift to the plump raspberry and bitter cherry flavours on the palate. Spice returns on the subtly tannic finish, which lingers with great clarity.
