Giant Steps have a fastidious approach to vineyard management, with the most well-manicured vines you will ever see, as they believe if you have great grapes, you’ll make great wine. An ethos that has seen them named a Top 100 Winery for each of the last six years and named Top Australian Winery of the year four times by Wine & Spirits Magazine US. They are a 5-star James Halliday rated winery, and Winemaker Steve Flamsteed was Gourmet Traveller’s Australian Winemaker of the Year in 2016.
With very low yields, comes naturally higher acidity and incredible bright fruit flavours. You get an instantly appealing profile, but one that you know will unfold well with time as it has superb structure. The grapes were all hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented in 500 litre French Puncheons (10% of which were new). with no lees stirring. 20% of the wine underwent spontaneous malolactic fermentation before being put into a combination of 10% new and 90% old French barrels for eight months.
The result is an incredible palate intensity... with an orchard full of sun ripened nectarines and peaches, a waft of citrus and a seductive blossom note. A rich spicy hazelnut note adds to its incredible complexity and texture. Rich and creamy, with a vibrant acidity that lingers on and on. This is a statement wine, that will suit foods that make a statement too, so don't be afraid of bold flavours as it certainly has the legs! Match with roasted chicken with preserved lemon and garlic, or fried soft shell crab bao buns with fresh coriander and micro greens.
This is seductive wine, made with outstanding fruit and skillful winemaking – deserving of a Fine Wine Delivery 97/100. Secure yours today at the wonderful price of $39.99, before it all disappears... and enjoy now through to 2025!
