2019 Giant Steps Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir Yarra Valley – Steve Flamsteed is at it again with another rocking vintage for his 2019 wines.
After discovering Yarra Valley wines 25 years ago Lou Primavera planted this vineyard in Hoddles Creek in 2001. We have a long-standing relationship with the Primavera family – having sourced fruit from the vineyard for some years. Testament to the increasing quality of this site, we are now producing a single vineyard Pinot Noir from Primavera.
A cool start to the season was punctuated by a few solid rain events in December that resulted in very large healthy green vineyard canopies. The final stage of the growing season was warmer than average which led to accelerated ripening, and dark colours. Natural acidity across the Pinot blocks was surprisingly high. Fruit was hand sorted in both vineyard and winery. There is an incredible structure to the 19 vintage Pinots.
Light, delicate and pretty. Abundance of fruit sweetness, red and black berries for the most part. A light dusting of spice, some meaty characters and a soft, delicate grip from the tannins. Excellent complexity and a whole lot of enjoyment.
