Giant Steps 2017 Sexton Pinot Noir
Winery : Giant Steps
2017 really was a sensational vintage! Good intermittent rainfall with cool to mild temperatures, and not a day over 40 degrees during the summer months marked 2017 out as a classic cool climate vintage. All varieties came in later than average, ripening at an unhurried pace in these ideal growing conditions, producing wines of incredible structure, detail and length.
Giant Steps' Applejack Vineyard was planted in the Upper Yarra in 2001 by Ray Guerin, viticulturist par excellence. The vineyard, which was purchased by Phil Sexton of Giant Steps, is located on a dramatic north-east facing slope.
