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
Hand-picked without additions. 25% (115 clone) was transferred as whole bunches to small oak and stainless steel open vats. The remainder (MV6 and Pommard clone) was destemmed and transferred as whole berries to the fermenters. Fermentations were indigenous and left alone with little cap work, relying upon carbonic maceration for extraction. Pressed at dryness to new and used 228L tight grain French barriques for 10 months – 25% new, 75% older. Bottled by gravity with no fining or filtration. Made without animal products.
