PUNCHING ABOVE ITS SIZE. 92/100 NEW RELEASE!
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.
This new release from Little Giant is an absolute cracker! Sourced from dry grown vineyards across South Australia, this is a classic looking Malbec with a deep crimson colour in the glass. Dark berry aromas are complemented by floral hints and a subtle sweet tobacco influence that is so typical of this varietal.
The palate is bursting with juicy black fruits, a touch of oak and a soft easy-going tannin structure making it a perfect match for any kind of barbecued meats. At 14% abv, this stunning Malbec is terrific to drink now, but will cellar extremely well and soften over the next 2 - 6 years.
"It's beautifully fruited and perfumed, showing Black Doris plum, raspberry, floral and mixed spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate offering youthful fruit intensity together with silky texture and fine-grained tannins. Friendly and delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2026."
