Located in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Giant Steps is recognised as a global benchmark for cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The winery was established in 1998, one year after founder Phil Sexton arrived in the Yarra Valley in search of ideal sites to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of purity and finesse. Enlisting the help of Chief Winemaker Steve Flamsteed who joined the winery in 2003, the two set to create a range of wines that personify the Yarra Valley. Today, the winery is regarded as one of the most progressive in Australia and is recognised globally for its pursuit of site expression. The wines are among the most anticipated releases from Australia and considered benchmarks for the Yarra Valley.

Hand-picked, all fruit is chilled overnight to 12 degrees Celsius. Indigenous yeast fermentation. Fermented in small oak fermenters. The MV6 was fermented as 100% whole bunches, while the G clone was destemmed, soaked cold for 5 days, then allowed to warm gently into a wild ferment. It’s the first time we have included the G clone since 2015 and we felt it contributed an elegant musk perfume to tame the final blend. All parcels were matured in French oak – 25% new, 75% older – for 8 months in 225L barriques, Taranasaud, Vicard and D&J.Racked to blend, no fining, no filtration. Bottled by gravity.
