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: Sourced from premium Adelaide Hills vineyard, fruit for this Gris was pressed and then left for three hours on skins (the juice and the crushed berries) to give the palate some texture. It was fermented cool and then matured on yeast lees for 7 months in three-year old barrels.
2021 Vintage: 2021 was an outstanding vintage for the Adelaide Hills and it came as a welcome relief after the appalling conditions of the previous year. A cool, wet spring helped with soil moisture followed by a warm November ensuring no damaging weather conditions. Cool and calm weather followed that meant even ripening and good acid retention. A mild end to summer and a cool Autumn saw fruit hanging with no disease or extreme heat posing a problem. Yields and quality were up across the board.
Tasting Note: Soft, approachable and well loved - just like the Wombat - Pinot Gris is a little giant of the wine world. Coming from the cooler climes of the Adelaide Hills you’ll see notes of vibrant pear and appleon the nose that are relected on the fulsome and generous palate all balanced by crisp acidity. Drink with seafood dishes or roast pork.
