12 in stock
Giant Steps Pinot Noir 2021 is a delightful result of the challenging growing season of the Yarra Valley. Thanks to the extended slow–ripening period, the white pepper, Earl Grey tea, cherry and raspberry notes of this wine have been intensified. Winemaker Mel Chester has created an elegant yet highly crowd–pleasing blend of 60/40 Upper/Lower Yarra Valley vineyards that have been carefully hand–picked and open–fermented, with 60% of the grapes kept as whole berries, giving Giant Steps Pinot Noir 2021 a unique character.
This wine begins with a spicy and chocolaty aroma with a subtle hint of red and dark berries, combined with dried herbs and orange jam. Upon tasting, a medium–bodied and silky flavor is revealed, stemming from its supple tannins, and ending in a vibrant and juicy fruit finish. Giant Steps Pinot Noir 2021 showcases the influence of climatic conditions, with its well–rounded complexity of flavors that is depicted with the use of these unique vineyards.
Overall, this wine is an excellent quality Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley, with a long finish that could easily age from now until 2034 with proper cellaring.
