|Categories for this Product:||
Winemaker: Nicholas Crampton
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
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: Grapes were crushed and de-stemmed then transferred to tank. Fermented over a ten day period with regular pumpovers to aid colour and tannin extraction from the skins. After being pressed the wine was transferred to oak for a minimum of 6 months.
Vintage 2019: 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 Nebbiolo fruit.
Tasting Note: The Adelaide Hills has become one of the best regions to grow Nebbiolo thanks to warm
days and cool nights. This Nebbiolo has an ethereal Pinot-like character. It’s red in colour with an orange rim and looks like a lighter-bodied red. It has aromas of roses and a delicate perfume of orange rind and plum with a savoury intensity. The palate is so?? and has a great intensity of fruit complemented by Nebbiolo’s textbook tannins. Good drinking now and over the next five years.
