Little Giant Little Batch Grenache Tempranillo 2019

The Little Giant range strike out with these Little Batch range, still in the stocky, stout package representative of its label showing the southern hairy-nose wombat, South Australia’s fauna emblem and supporting WIRES wildlife rescue. This one sees a blend of “Rioja” styling but closer to home in the Barossa.

Little Giant, Little Batch, Grenache/Tempranillo, Barossa Valley, 2019

Fun and dark. With herby, red jubey action and some leafy tomato stalk, this is kissed with a hint of vanilla bean sweetness. A little thick through the palate, bordering on syrupy with drying, peppery spice to finish. The tannins a touch chunky, the acidity keen and there’s some spirity warmth and lift, but it’s a nod to the style.
