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.
Little Giant gets a natural and organic makeover thanks to some authentic lo-fi winemaking. The wines are the result of a collaboration between McLaren Vale winemaker Mike Brown and Corey Ryan of Little Giant – the wines are exclusively sourced from a single estate vineyard in McLaren Vale. These are fresh, immediately drinkable, deliciously food friendly wines that are the essence of one of South Australia’s favourite wine regions.
Winemaking: Winemaking: Made in the Traditional ‘Pet Nat’ way - just pressed juice was put into bottle with no additions to ferment and produce a naturally sparkling style full of refreshment.
Vintage 2022: Another good vintage in the Vale. There was an abundance of rain in winter, allowing the vines to grow a good canopy followed by a cool, dry summer which ensured even ripening. The results show great quality fruit with moderate yields.
Tasting Note: Made with pure biodynamic grapes this is a refreshing sparkling style wine that is the perfect for your next picnic in the park. Chill it down and pour into tumblers as Pet Nat does not need fancy glassware. Clean and fresh with vibrant citrus aromas with creamy undertones. Nicely balanced with a long finish and crisp, cleansing acidity. Pair with hot chips or just on its own.
