Giant Steps Sexton 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 the Sexton vineyard in Gruyere. Destemmed with whole berries and matured nine months in French barriques (20% new). A deep ruby crimson. The densest and most brooding of the Giant Steps Yarra Valley single-vineyard pinots from 2022. You'll find bramble berries, freshly ploughed earth and a little black pepper. Savoury and concentrated on the palate, there is plenty of meat on the bones with substantial and persistent tannins masked by the sheer weight of plush fruit at this stage. A succulent wine to enjoy now and over the next few years. - 96pts James Halliday, Wine Companion
