Giant Steps Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019


Made from hand picked tiny bunches with excellent concentrated flavour and aroma, look out for the signature cumquat amaro note that is produced from these reddish soils. The palate has a refreshing lift and displays a whole basket of forest fruits and umami notes. There is a twang of herbal note kicking in late and a long line of acidity keeps balance and holds flavour on the palate. Amazing wine to try with confit duck. Fermented in small oak fermenters. The 115 was fermented as 100% whole bunch, while the MV6 was destemmed, soaked cold for 5 days, then allowed to warm gently into a wild ferment. All 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.
