Giant Steps 2022 Yarra Valley Light Dry Red


We love this fun blend of Pinot Noir and Syrah, it’s light and approachable in style. We don’t process the Syrah in a way to produce structure and tannin, we’re really just trying to accentuate the fruit. Crisp tannins, raspberry and strawberry characters, white pepper spice and blood orange acidity. Try it lightly chilled, it’s delicious.


Varietals: Pinot Noir and Syrah

Vintage Notes: 2022 was a very small, high quality vintage in the Yarra Valley. The season was defined by a cool Spring, a mild growing season, cool nights and some conveniently spaced rain. The vineyards developed dark green healthy canopies with strong vine energy and good fruit set. This resulted in smaller crops with concentrated bunch flavour, vibrant colours and high natural acidity.

Vinification: 100% hand-picked. Fermented in small open vats with indigenous yeasts. The Syrah fermented using 100% whole bunch carbonic maceration. The Pinot Noir was destemmed and cold soaked for 4 days, and then fermented as whole berries. 3 months maturation in large old French oak barrels. No fining, bottled by gravity.

Food Pairing:

  • Hibachi char-grilled octopus with a squeeze of lemon.
  • Manchego cheese and green olive tapenade.
  • Wood fired pizza.
  • Miso eggplant, baked polenta with salsa verde.
  • Pork rilletes and cornichons.
