Giant Steps Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

$68.00

The most difficult of the single vineyard pinots to come to grips with early, and has the most dramatic metamorphosis with age. Elemental at this stage, cherry, plum, raspberry, Asian spices, marzipan, cumin, wood and blackberry. Medium bodied, but gosh, such power. Mouthcoating flavour and texture, with rhubarb and lavender in the mix. As with all the wines, driven by immense acids and gilt framed by horsehair tannins. Profound in that it is obviously Pinot Noir, but a haunting and unique expression nonetheless. Awesome. Waters Wine Co

Sexton Vineyard is planted on shallow gray dirt over mudstone. The elevation is 220 meters and shows the magic of a warmer part of the Yarra in a relatively cool year. Plum skin, chinotto, fig, blueberries and exotic spices form the backdrop to the bright strawberry/cherry fruit. The 2021 Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir is structurally quite different from the other vineyards, in that the tannins are more grainy and gravelly and provide more framework from which the fruit can hang. It is perhaps more obvious in its display of fruit and tannin, but with that comes a sonorous baritone of tannin and flavor. Impressive. 93+ points – Erin Larkin
