Wine of the Week AU

Giant Steps LDR Pinot Noir Syrah 2017, Yarra Valley, AUD $35

A blend of pinot noir and syrah from the Primavera and Sexton vineyards, this is a captivating red that sits fashionably in the lighter sphere. For me, it ticks all the boxes: fragrance, flavour, moderate alcohol, integrated acidity and personality. It is bursting with red fruits and alluring white pepper spice. (Screwcap)
