Showcasing two of McLaren Vale’s quality red grapes, Little Giant from the team at Fourth Wave Wine have released this as part of the “Little Batch” range.
Little Giant, Little Batch, Shiraz/Mataro, McLaren Vale, 2020
Comforting, plush raspberry, red liquorice, white pepper and mocha chocolatey oak. Some steely ferrous, graphite, bloody meaty depth. Medium to full bodied with tight lines. Plenty of herbal Mataro action that drives intrigue while the dark fruit is shiny and fresh with eager support from crumbly tannins and a sharp, protein rich aged cheddar cheese like richness and acidity. Medium length of flavour, but its staying true to its intensions.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
