Giant Steps LDR Shiraz Pinot 2017

Expressive mix of damsony fruit, tartness of cherry, smokey, reductive,  savoury elements of earth.

It certainly lives up to its LDR (Light Dry Red) billing, having the faintest of touches. It’s a blend of Pinot Noir (51%) from the famed Primavera and Syrah (49%) from Sexton vineyards.

The fruit gives way to spice, the two seemingly then working in tandem. Faint tannin adds some substance and structure. Holds a chill very well, and easily sloshed back with abandon. 92
