Winemaker's Notes

The 75 acre Giant Steps vineyard is on the north face of the Warramate Ranges in the central Yarra Valley, an hour east of Melbourne. Established across a series of ridges rising from the 300 to 1000 foot level, the vineyard is planted to rocky/ gravelly clays. The pinot plantings comprise a selection of seven different clonal variations, sourced from Burgundy, Australia and New Zealand.

A heady, alluring nose, with abundant aromas of floral cherries, earthy spice, sap, preserved plums and berries. The medium weight palate displays a silky textural quality with blackberry, strawberry, char and cedar. Firm, balanced and layered over a scaffold of dusty "top of the mouth" tannin. A wine drinking exceptionally well now with medium aging potential.
