Giant Steps has forged a reputation as one of the Yarra Valley's leading wineries, with their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay consistently among the nation's finest examples. This newly released 2021 Giant Steps Yarra Valley Pinot Noir follows in the footsteps of recent vintages of this wine that have proved hugely popular.
Once again, this 2021 Giant Steps Yarra Valley Pinot Noir delivers remarkable vibrancy and approachability, the underlying complexity and intensity of flavour makes this a standout - and exceptional value for money at this price.
"96 Points. 60/40% upper/lower Yarra Valley fruit. Hand picked and open-fermented with 60% whole berries, the remainder whole bunches. A very bright, light–medium crimson red. A gentle waft of fresh raspberries and cranberries, with just the right amount of spice-rack spices. Delicious right out of the gate, this medium-bodied and refreshing wine will age well too. The perfect introduction to modern Yarra pinot. $38. Drink by 2026. Screwcap"- Philip Rich, winecompanion.com.au.
