Prima pinot

Giant Steps Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $50

This is a concentrated, powerful single-vineyard pinot of fascination and complexity. Foresty, undergrowth notes, plums and cherries, a smoky overtone. It’s very intense, profound and delicious, loaded with charm and exceptional persistence. Great pinot! (Screwcap)
