Part of the “little batch” range for the Little Giant label (showing the hair nosed wombat: South Australia’s fauna emblem and supporting WIRES wildlife rescue). Spanish styling. Australian fruit. Rowland Flat via Rioja.
Little Giant, Little Batch, Grenache/Tempranillo, Barossa Valley, 2021
A step up in finesse from the 2019. Juicy, dark berry and anise herbal hints, some rich gamey flesh and vanilla bean pod sweetness. Mid weight, easily textured and having an inherent drinkability.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
