About Giant Steps
In 1997 Phil Sexton arrived in the Yarra Valley in search of altitude, aged soils, slopes of exposure, regular rainfall and cool to cold night time temperatures and a gentle breeze off the protecting mountain ranges. Why, because he wanted to grow amazing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit to make wines of purity and finesse.
Steve Flamsteed, Chief Winemaker of Giant Steps since 2003 has set about creating a range of Single Vineyard wines that personify each site. The Yarra Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were then created, clearly displaying the Yarra Valley fruit in a simple, textural and affordable light.
Single Vineyard Range
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 with some vineyards producing as little as 200 cases.
