Giant Steps is a privately owned Yarra Valley producer that has forged a reputation for making some of the Yarra Valley’s most consistently exciting wines from estate-owned vineyards. The Giant Steps Single Vineyard wines are produced from their best vineyards in great years. Head winemaker Steve Flamsteed and his team 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. Producing a range of Giant Steps wines using fruit blended from across the estate has been many years in discussion. These wines were born from a desire to produce a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of Giant Steps quality which are expressive of the regional characteristics of the Yarra Valley rather than a single site.
100% Pinot Noir
The Yarra Valley wines are produced using a natural winemaking philosophy, whilst ensuring quality is the priority. Vinification took place using indigenous yeasts, gravity-flow winemaking and minimal fining and filtration. This approach produces highly expressive wines, true to the climate, soil and topography of the Yarra Valley.
Ideal with any lamb dish – roasted, casseroled or even lightly spiced in a Middle Eastern style.
