Giant Steps Primavera Pinot Noir 2022

A star producer from the Yarra Valley, the already sensational quality of Giant Steps rose to benchmark levels following the acquisition of the producer by global wine company Kendall-Jackson. With a track record of pairing the best sites with the best winemakers, Giant Steps is now a producer making Pinot Noir & Chardonnay of international renown. 

From Lou Primavera's 2001-planted vineyard at Woori Yallock; 25% whole bunches on the clone 115 component, while clones MV6 and G were destemmed. Matured in French barriques (25% new). Wonderfully perfumed and vibrant with its aromas of cranberries, wild strawberries, a little Sichuan pepper, fresh citrus oil and musk roses at dusk. A wine of exquisite finesse and excellent depth, the tannins are very fine and long, as is the finish. This will provide much enjoyment over the next decade or so. - 97pts James Halliday, Wine Companion
