2020 Little Giant Little Batch Cabernet Malbec Barossa Valley – The southern hairy-nose wombat is smaller than other wombats but is stocky, robust and the proud state emblem of South Australia. Like the might of the little wombat, Little Giant is crafted from premium regional South Australian fruit from established vineyards that deliver character and interest well above their size and weight.
Hand-crafted and made with minimal additions and preservatives, these are wines made of the vineyard. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, minimally handled in the winery and fruit vibrancy is not hidden by non-essential artifact. Seeking first and foremost fruit expression, drinkability and to be a great accompaniment to food. Don’t let the size fool you, these are wines you’ll want to drink.
Surprisingly Cabernet Sauvignon from the Western Ridge of the Barossa Valley make more medium weighted styles. Blending Malbec with this type of Cabernet Sauvignon provides the structure and body to the wine. Cabernet provides a lovely spice, cedar and dried herb undertone to the wine, while the Malbec adds blue fruits and chiselled tannins. Pair with a rib eye steak.
