Giant Steps Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Handled with kid gloves right through to bottling which took place by gravity feed. This Pinot saw 25% new oak for eleven months and is a blend of the Sexton, Applejack and Tarraford vineyards. Whilst this is a new label to the Giant Steps range, the same rule applies as with the Chardonnay - only a fool would write this off as the dregs.

Red and sour cherries, cranberry juice, mushroom compost and a soothing spice. It carries a delicate weight yet delivers generous width and an almost endless length.

Drink within five years.

Readily available.

Very good+
