Description

The southern hairy-nose wombat is smaller than other wombats but is stocky, robust and the proud state emblem of South Australia. Like the might of the little wombat, Little Giant is crafted from premium regional South Australian fruit from established vineyards that deliver character and interest well above their size and weight. Hand-crafted and made with minimal additions and preservatives, these are wines made of the vineyard. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, minimally handled in the winery and fruit vibrancy is not hidden by non-essential artefact. Seeking first and foremost fruit expression, drinkability and to be a great accompaniment to food. Don’t let the size fool you, these are wines you’ll want to drink.

Winemaking: Little Giant Grenache was crafted from a combination of older and younger vines from Grenache vineyards within Seaview and Willunga. Small 3-5 ton batches of high quality hand-picked fruit were fermented separately in open top fermenters. Minimal daily plunging ensured to gently build color and the tannin profile without over extraction before being transferred partially to older oak and the remainder to stainless steel tank for maturation prior to blending and bottling.

Vintage: After a forgettable 2020 winemakers in McLaren Vale were buoyed by what can only be described as a dream vintage. The great season was due to a wet Winter, allowing the vines grow a good canopy followed by a cool, dry summer which ensured even ripening. The results saw not just great quality fruit but yields were up too. A great vintage for the Vale.


Tasting Notes

The Little Giant Grenache is a wine that keeps on giving. A full bodied wine that has ample weight with ripe fruited intensity yet still feels fresh. Expressive red and fark berry fruit underpinned by hints of chocolate and subtle oak. The palate delivers soft tannins and ensures a lasting concentration of berry fruit, vanilla and ground spices. Perfect with lamb shoulder and spicy cous-cous.
