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: From premium vineyards in the Adelaide Hills (on in the North and two in the South), grapes were hand-picked with fruit at optimum ripeness for good flavor and natural acids. It was then fermented cool with 20% new oak and 10% malolactic to aid texture.

Vintage: 2020 will certainly be remembered as one of the more challenging vintages for vignerons in the hills. Bushfires decimated many vineyards and smoke taint then proved a challenge. Although yields were down dramatically we were able to source some parcels of great Chardonnay fruit.

Tasting Notes

As with all the Little Giant wines, no shortage of flavor here. The aim with this Chardonnay was to take the finest free run juice and make an approachable style for immediate enjoyment. Varietal nose of citrus, oatmeal and a hint of cashew-like oak. The palate is creamy and textural exhibiting bright fruit, integrated oak and clean acidity on the finish. Drink now or cellar in the medium term.
