Giant Steps Sexton & Applejack Pinot Noirs

$53.00 - $318.00

The Sexton Vineyard is located on the steep slopes of the Warramate Ranges. Yields are naturally low in this environment with its thin top soils.

Giant Steps 2016 Sexton Vineyard Pinot is deep and dense, the focused fruit packed in pretty tight at the moment. There's blood, stone and raspberries initially but sit and let it open and sweet blackberries emerge. Oh so mouthfilling; plenty of ripe fruit but a grown-up savoury finish with the acid adding a final refreshing fillip.


Applejack Vineyard was planted in the Upper Yarra in 2001 by Ray Guerin, viticulturist par excellence. The vineyard, which was purchased by Phil Sexton of Giant Steps, is located on a dramatic north-east facing slope.

Giant Steps 2014 Applejack Pinot - Huon Hooke 95points, 5 stars: 'Medium red/purple bright colour, with a definite root vegetable stemmy bouquet. The palate echoes this, with parsnip, turnip-like characteristics, which are very attractive and starting to morph into lifted perfumes. The palate is elegant and fine, intense and focused, with light, soft tannins in abundance. Very long palate. There's a lot of whole-bunch here, but so much else as well. A very stylish pinot'
