This wine was released last year and looked fantastic. Have just re-tasted last week of January and it is simply outstanding. Lots of brightly perfumed fruit with five spice, sapp and long crumbling fruit. Light on its feet, yet very intense. Highly recommended. Ian Cook, Five Way Cellars.
Grey dirt, some altitude, comparatively. About 50% whole bunch, more or less. Applejack rising into iconic status for vineyards of the Yarra off the back of many great Giant Steps wines.
Sleek and fresh-feeling pinot noir, pepper and garrigue-spiked sour cherry scents and flavours, cool and refined feel, great length, high drinkability. A light crunch to tannins, sheath of which holds the wine tight and long in shape and form. This has some mojo, loaded with personality in its slender, transparent feel. This I like, great energy here.
