Personalised Fatal Shore by Giant Steps Pinot Noir 2019 13.5% 750ML

Hand picked, straight into a refrigerated container parked on the vineyard. The fruit is then immediately sailed across Bass Strait and we receive it into the winery the following morning. We destem the D clone and cold soak for 3 – 4 days, then allow it to warm to kick start fermentation (Indigenous yeast) in a small open oak vat. The MV6 from the top of the hill was fermented as whole bunches Both parcels were matured in French oak – 25% new, 75% older – for 8 months in 225L barriques. Racked to blend, no fining, no filtration. Bottled by gravity.

Expert Review:
James Suckling- 96 points- This has impressive depth and fruit purity. Aromas of red cherries, roses, spiced earth, bracken and blueberries lead to a palate that has very energetic red and dark cherries with tannins that wrap and expand out the finish. Fresh acidity holds it long and vibrant. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Yarra Valley based vigneron, Phil Sexton lives with his family in the middle of their 32 hectare vineyard established on the high north face of the Warramate Ranges in the dress circle of the Yarra Valley. Specialising in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Giant Steps explore site, micro climatic and clonal differences between several specialized vineyards in the Yarra Valley including their own multi-clonal vineyard and the highly regarded Tarraford vineyard. Focused intently upon reflecting the individual and unique characteristics of each single vineyard, Giant Steps adopts a minimalist approach to winemaking including, whenever possible, vinification using indigenous yeasts and gravity flow transfers.
