96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday

The Giant Steps Single Vineyard range is produced from the most site-expressive fruit off the best vineyards in great years. Each single vineyard wine tells a story about the vineyard, vintage and variety. Production of these wines is very limited.

Made without compromise using 100% hand picked fruit from meticulously maintained Applejack  vineyards. Natural winemaking philosophy, while making quality the priority. Minimal intervention in the vineyard and 100% hand-picked.  50% whole bunch, remainder whole berry, indigenous fermentation in 4000L open oak vats. Delestage by gravity and occasional hand plunges. 11 months in new and used French barriques – 30% new, 70% older.

“MV6 and 114 clones, wild yeast fermented in stainless steel and an open oak vat, 50% whole bunches, delestage by gravity, matured in French oak (25% new) for 11 months. Bright and clear hue; a highly fragrant bouquet of red flowers and fruits leads a silky, elegant and relatively light-bodied palate, but don’t be deceived: this has the greatest symmetry and length of the ’16 Giant Steps Pinots.” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
