The Little Giant team have done it again. The supercool squat bottles give you a clear signal that there is something special going on here and this opulent Aussie red ticks every other box. Complex and intense dark fruits on the palate with a subtle spice charcter. Beautiful harmony throughout, something truly special in the glass.
Sam Kim writes "It's wonderfully ripe and immediately appealing on the nose showing cassis, dark plum, vanilla, cedar and subtle tobacco notes, followed by a concentrated palate that's flavoursome and persistent. The wine combined fabulous fruit richness with elegant complexity."
Angus Hughson writes "These Little Giant wines are built to impress and are packed full of flavour. Our favourite of the lot is this delicious Coonawarra Cabernet with the classic appeal of this famous region. It is deeply coloured and displays beautifully pure leafy, choc-mint and blackcurrant fruits with a touch of cedar too, and admirable concentration. The fruit is generous and fleshy on the palate backed by balanced tannins and acidity plus subtle oak that drive a long finish. Quite a serious wine from Coonawarra at a great price."
Vibrant bright crimson red with deep purple hues. Showing a lilled perfumed nose of blackcurrant and mulberry fruit and followed by a chocolate oak with subtle spice character. The palate shows dark berry fruit flavours upfront with hints of nutmeg and subtle herb and red florals in the finish. Supple varietal tannins give classical framework and weight to the wine which finishes with integrated fruit and oak driving a long finish.
