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: Sourced from two vineyards that were planted with one on black and the other on red soild of the famed Coonawarra. All the fruit was picked during the early morning to retain colour and flavour and then crushed and fermented for a period of up to 10 days. Following primary fermentation the wine was pressed off into a small parcel of new but mostly into older oak for malolactic fermentation and maturation where it was held for a period of 120 monhts prior to blending and bottling.

Vintage: 2020 in Coonawarra is best described as small quantitues of high quality fruit. The naturally cooler vineyards were picked later and benefitted from conditions moderating as well as a well-timed rain event re-vitalising the wines prior to vintage. The region reported good yields of well-balanced fruit with great intensity of flavour.

Tasting Notes

Dark red in appearance with deep purple hues. Showing a perfumed nose of black currant and cassis fruit followed by toasty oak and subtle spice notes. The palate shows dark berry fruit flavours with hints of nutmeg and red florals on the finish. Supple varietal tannins lend structure and weight to the wine which finishes with integrated fruit and oak driving a long finish. Perfect with slow roasted lamb shoulder.
