A same year vintage release of this youthful Merlot under the Little Giant range by Fourth Wave Wine. Winemaker is Corey Ryan.
Little Giant, Merlot, Adelaide Hills, 2022
Winemaking is a little vague, but the brightness of the wine and the release suggests minimal oak treatment. Raspberry and cherry flesh over plum sauce with suggestions of fennel frond, licorice and leafy rose petals. Medium bodied globules of same raspberry and cherry flesh with easy, fine tannin. Bright and clean finish.
Rating: 17.25/20 (89/100)
