Mainstay of Fourth Wave Wine’s Little Giant range. Wine makers are Corey Ryan & Jim Zerella with fruit from Barossa and Eden Valleys.
Little Giant, Shiraz, Barossa, 2021
Rich garnet with bright purple rims. Plenty of woody spice, mocha sweet oak, blood plum, licorice, boysenberry and blueberry. Plush and firm with a wonderfully dark herbal edge thanks to the Eden Valley fruit. It’s got a lick of warmth while the tannins are slightly chewy, yet focused with a chary feature from the oak. Offers plenty for the dollars.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
