Little Giant, Shiraz, Barossa, 2020
Deep garnet to purple. Such quintessential Barossa: Christmas cake/fruit cake spice: full of peel and depth. Vanilla kisses of toasty sweet oak, deep plum, hints of blue meaty depth and black olive. A judicious balance of ripe valley floor fruit with savoury black Eden nuances. The finish is maybe a touch short, but more than made up for with satin layers of ripe fruit. Easy sandy tannins and a little bite of freshness keep it interesting.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
