Giant Steps, Fatal Shore Pinot Noir, Tasmania 2021

Giant Steps

Case Format: 6x75cl

From Tasmania, Giant Steps introduces the Fatal Shore Pinot Noir—a wine that beautifully captures the essence of this remarkable island’s terroir.

Tasmania, with its cool climate, is increasingly recognized as a haven for Pinot Noir, and the Fatal Shore is a shining example of the region’s potential. The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are thoughtfully cultivated, allowing them to express the nuances of Tasmania’s unique soils and maritime influences.

In the cellar, Giant Steps’ winemaking philosophy combines tradition with innovation, with a focus on preserving the natural purity of the fruit. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, chosen to enhance the wine’s character while respecting its origins.

The bouquet is a medley of red berries, cherries, and subtle floral notes. On the palate, it unfolds with grace, presenting vibrant acidity, silky tannins, and a mosaic of flavours—strawberries, raspberries, and a hint of spice—all harmoniously intertwined. The finish is lingering and elegant, leaving an indelible impression of Tasmania’s natural beauty.

James Suckling

Attractive aromas of cherries and strawberries with dried herbs, rose petals and dried blood orange. Medium-bodied with polished texture and ultra fine tannins. It’s so lively and electrified with a pure and ripe fruit character that offers an array of cocoa-dusted strawberries and savory undertones. It’s spicy and long. Delicious. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Made with fruit from the Coal River Valley, in Tasmania, the 2021 Fatal Shore Pinot Noir is a wholly darker and more brooding expression of Giant Steps Pinot Noir, although Flamos (chief winemaker Steve Flamsteed) take is that they were able to imprint the Giant Steps style on the wine, despite the fruit sourcing, which I agree with. The fruit, in case you were wondering, was reefer-trucked up to the winery and was in the Yarra by the following morning, where the two clones were treated differently; the MV6 was fermented with whole bunches, while the D5V15 was fermented whole berry. This brings a ripe cherry character to mind, with hints of red apple, fresh garden mint and crushed graphite tannins.
