Giant Steps 2020 Yarra Valley Syrah Carignan Grenache


With a little bit more age on this wine you can really see the tannins softening. A blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache gives sweet and savoury aromas with a warm, earthy background. Think soft, ripe fruit and savoury complexity on the finish…yum!


Varietals: Syrah, Carignan and Grenache

Vintage Notes: 2020 was a particularly challenging vintage across much of Australia, but we were very lucky here in the Yarra Valley. It was a bit of a rollercoaster – with a cool, wet Spring, a dry December and then a mild February, punctuated by a few significant rain events… Harvest weather was moderate and stable as we went into a classic Indian summer. The Syrah, Carignan and Grenache were highly perfumed, rich and ripe.

Vinification: The Syrah comes from the Sexton and Tarraford Vineyards, the Carignan and the Grenache are grown at the Tarraford Vineyard.The Syrah is predominantly the Red Dog 67 clone that we have propagated from our original block 2 vines – that clone is unique to Tarraford and carries a special perfume. Each variety and parcel is fermented separately in small open vats with varying degrees of whole bunch and whole berry fermentation, before being matured in large and small oak for 18 months.The final blend was completed in the Spring of 2021 and left in tank to settle and come together until bottling just before Christmas, by gravity, no fining, no filtration.This blend is inspired by the band of fresh delicious early drinking reds being produced in the cool regions of Australia.
