Giant Steps Sexton Pinot Noir 2012
This is a very good wine. My experience with this wine dated back to the MD's presentation in London trade Fair 10 years ago. Excellent presentation. Better than most of the MWs I have ever met in my life. The following perhaps say it all. Australian Wine Companion - "Significantly deeper colour, although still bright and clear, compared to its Single Vineyard siblings. This sets the stage for a pinot with a great bouquet and a layered palate of black cherry and plum, gently, but insistently, filling every corner of the mouth, and lingering on the aftertaste."
The Wine Advocate - "Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2012 Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with a pretty, warm raspberry and red cherry core highlighted by suggestions of spearmint, milk chocolate and forest floor. Medium-bodied with a medium level of fine-grained tannins, it has a generous amount of mid-palate fruit juxtaposed by refreshing acid and a long finish with some mineral notes. Rating: 91+"
