Little Giant Barossa Shiraz 2022


Love the squat bottles for the Little Giant range, although they may not fit all cellar wine racks (you’ll just have to drink faster). With a label featuring the southern hairy-nosed wombat, which is apparently the state emblem of South Australia (who knew?), this is a quality Barossa Shiraz, which spent nine months in larger oak formats, both French and American. A gleaming dark cherry red. Immediate and obvious notes of chocolate, mocha and coffee grinds. Bright flavours follow on a seductively textured palate, through to a lengthy finish which does exhibit a tiny amount of almond bitterness, tying things together. Showing good balance and focus with fine tannins, this is seamless in style, a delicious drink and one which will continue to offer pleasure for at least the next six to eight years.
