Giant Steps Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020

Variety: Pinot Noir
Region: Yarra Valley
Vintage: 2020

Applejack Vineyard is located on a dramatic slope and is close planted and fastidiously managed. The basalt based underlying volcanic soil and rock produce a characteristically fine yet extended, spicy and firm palate. Hand picked, all fruit is chilled overnight to 12 degrees Celsius. Indigenous yeast fermentation. A deep, bright, crimson purple. Maraschino cherry into plum, there's an exotic and riotous amalgam of Asian five-spice and a gentle savoury, umami character. Elevates the concentration, along with Applejack's trademark perfume and spice. Just so vibrant and fresh on the palate, the tannins are both silky and plentiful. Enjoying this now, but the wine's track record suggests you'll appreciate if you still have some to drink 7–10 years from now.  Light, delicate but defined perfume of pomegranate juice, green herbs, white pepper, faint game meat.
