While the Innocent Bystander wines are made from grapes grown across the Yarra, the Giant Steps wines are produced exclusively from single vineyard sites. Grapes are selected from estate-owned and leased vineyards, as well as from long-term contracted growers. Head winemaker Steve Flamsteed and his team are making some of the best wines in Australia from these sites. Their aim is to express in each wine the character of the site, grape and vintage, and this they achieve by meticulous work in the vineyard and minimum intervention in the winery. The different vineyards shine through in the wines, as the winemaking is pretty much the same. Taste the Pinots or the Chardonnays side by side and look at the differences. Their characters are as clear and distinctive as in Burgundy, Barolo, the Mosel or any other great wine producing region in the world. For the Yarra is one of the world?s great wine producing regions, and Giant Steps is one of its outstanding producers.
