Giant Steps Yarra Valley



"50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot from the Sexton Vineyard, fermented separately...blended Jan ’14 and matured in French oak (40% new) for 18 months. Pussyfooting with Cabernet and Merlot doesn’t pay off, especially where you have the depth and varietal clarity of the grapes here, the Petit Verdot providing a rock solid bridge between the two varieties."
