2022 Giant Steps Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir Yarra Valley

From: $78.00

2022 Giant Steps Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir Yarra Valley – Steve Flamsteed is at it again with another rocking vintage for his 2022 wines.

The Sexton Vineyard is located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges, the Sexton Vineyard is exposed and demanding. Being on the higher slopes, topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Bunch yields set naturally low in this environment, resulting in intensely flavoured fruit with high skin to juice ratio.

2022 was a terrific vintage for both vineyard quality and quantity. They had a wet spring followed by a healthy amount of sunshine and some well-timed rain in January, leading to large green healthy canopies. The overall temperature during the growing season was cooler than average which led to a long slow ripening period and great concentration of flavours and natural acidity.

This must be close to one of our favourite Giant Steps wines. Loads of blueberry and cherries, some earthiness in the mix, subtle touch of oak and a mineral feel. Quite a powerful Pinot that is richly flavoured but still balanced and with a spectacular tannin profile.
