Pinot Noir Applejack Vineyard, Giant Steps, Yarra Valley 2018
From vines grown in the Upper Yarra Valley at higher altitudes of 300 metres above sea level, resulting in cooler growing conditions – ideal for Pinot Noir. A judicious investment in French oak results in a youthful palate with a refined feel with tight tannins and great length. Herbaceous, smoky cherry fruit and pronounced green bell pepper aromas – this is a superb wine.
This wine would be perfect with lamb chops, or an lighter roast dish – veggie or meat. It has the power and intensity to complement an Epoisses cheese – normally an accolade I only give to Pinot Noirs from Burgundy!
During our 2019 tour of Australia, we enjoyed a tasting of Giant Steps wines, and a picnic in the heart of their Sextons Vineyard – a gloriously picturesque finish to our tour as the sun shone brightly and we admired the magnificent views of the Yarra Valley – seems like a long time ago!
