Summary: 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 artifact. 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: Small 3-5 tonne batches of high quality hand-picked fruit were fermented separately in open top fermenters. Minimal daily plunging ensued to gently build colour 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 2020: 2020 had its challenges with a dry start and only a small portion of rain and with much
of the country suffering drought conditions. The warm dry spell continued in December with some extreme hot temperature days recorded. It was a late ripening year and yields were down but despite the challenges it was another excellent vintage across most parts of Australia.
Tasting Note: Short in stature and thick in the trunk - just like the wombat - old vines are rare and therefore coveted in the wine world. These old giants are renowned for producing superb fruit but in smaller quantities. Hence this very special “Little Wine”, a blend of a number of varieties all sourced from old vine vineyards and made in limited amounts. Soft, supple and generous this is the perfect wine for your next barbecue.
