Named after John Coltrane’s first solo album and the Sexton’s giant step from Margaret River (Devil’s Lair) to the Yarra Valley. They are fastidiously made, premium, terroir-driven, single vineyard wines. Modern, refined, complex.

Expert Reviews

94 Points A quite shy and subdued bouquet, the palate definition is the strength of this wine; plenty of toasty oak with nectarines and pear flesh and lively acidity providing outstanding length and harmony. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

95 Points / 5 Stars This combines great character and complexity with finesse and restrained power. The nougat-like aromas reflect careful use of barrels and other artefacts, no single element domiting. Great intensity, line and length. Huon Hooke Gourmet Traveller WINE Jul-09

4 Stars / 91 Points Faintly yeasty complexity, the Tarraford Vineyard makes a straightforward stone fruit impression with gently added winemaking complexity, some fresh cashew and honey. The palate is fine...ripe simple tropical and stone fruits, honey and nougat to close. Nick Stock Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 Jan-09

Winery Tasting Notes


Flinty, rain on concrete, earthy soil. Grapefruit, and char grilled orange peel Nectarine and toasted coconut.


Fresh limes and melt in your mouth macaroon biscuits. Creamy, full texture and excellent persistence.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Yarra Valley based vignerons, the Sexton family live in the middle of their 80 acre vineyard established on the high north face of the Warramate Ranges in the dress circle of the Yarra Valley, one hour east of Melbourne.

At Giant Steps, they explore site, micro climatic and clonal differences between several specialised vineyards in the Yarra Valley including their own multiclonal vineyard and the highly regarded Tarraford vineyard.

Focused intently upon reflecting the individual and unique characteristics of each single vineyard, Giant Steps adopts a minimalist approach to winemaking including, whenever possible, vinification using indigenous yeasts and gravity flow transfers.

When in the Yarra Valley you must stop by the winery/cellar door situated in the main street of Healesville, which offers wood fired pizzas, in-house roasted coffee, cheese, beer on tap, and of course wine.
