FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A MASSIVE STAFF FAVOURITE
Our team are well known fans of good Australian Grenache so we were thrilled when this absolute gem made it on to our tasting table. Beautifully presented in gorgeous heritage squat bottles, this really is the perfect red. It's a generous style showcasing the softer flavours of Australian Grenache - a variety we often describe as tasting like good Kiwi Pinot Noir blended with the power and weight of Aussie Shiraz.
Sam Kim writes "Varietally pure and expressive, the gorgeously perfumed bouquet shows sweet raspberry, cherry, floral and subtle spice aromas, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that's juicy and lingering. It's bright and refreshing with a lengthy silky finish."
The winery writes "The Little Giant Grenache just goes from strength to strength. A wine that is both mouth-filling yet medium weight with ripe fruited intensity. Vital red and dark berry fruit underpineed by hints of chocolate and integrated oak. The palate delivers tight-knit tannins and delivers a lasting flavour of berries, vanilla and fresh spice flavours."
Excellent bottle of wine.
Soft red berry flavours.
Fruity and perfect drinking now
