Cabernet and Malbec here from the Barossa rather than Clare. A split of 55% Cabernet and 45% Malbec. From the Fourth Wave Wine team and made by Nicholas Crampton.
Little Giant, Little Batch, Cabernet/Malbec, Barossa Valley, 2021
Darkly herbal with blood orange, stewing plums, licorice all sorts, blackberry compote, cedar, vanilla bean paste and ferrous steel. Texture like velvet, mid weight and bright through the finish. Malbec provides spice and lift through the chocolatey rich Barossa Cabernet. Perfect foil for straight off the bbq steaks.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
