CELLAR DOOR CHALLENGE: SUPPORTING LOCAL WINERIES

#cellardoorchallenge // This Week it’s all about…
Giant Steps Syrah – 2017.
Yarra Valley.
Supporting Victorian wineries during Covid – 19 restrictions, we are pleased to be involved with the #cellardoorchallenge.
I loved this lovely Yarra Valley wine when I first tasted it a few years ago. Such a classic vintage for Syrah and Pinot Noir in the Yarra Valley.


It went down a treat with Filet Mignon, parsnip mash and local asparagus. Red wine reduction and horseradish cream to accompany. Mmm – that’s nice.

Giant Steps Syrah 2017.
Being a cooler vintage – this lovely regional Syrah is elegant and medium bodied. There is ample natural acidity to support the vibrant raspberry / red fruit palate. There is even a whiff of white pepper – reflective of the mild and extended ripening.  Silky tannins too.
What a pity I don’t have any more of this wonderful wine. Sad face.
