Little Giant Single Vineyard Barossa Shiraz 2018
Sometimes the wines from the Barossa can be a little simple; powerful and rich but lacking in detail. But here we have a beautifully multi-dimensional wine that packs a serious punch but also carries with it plenty of interesting twists and turns to keep you coming back for more.
It stars with a deep, dark ruby colour that is black as night before the wine takes you on a journey from blackberry essence and tar through to cinnamon and black pepper rounded off with vanilla oak. It is followed by a bone dry, dense and ripe palate full of cocoa and liquorice allsorts flavoured fruits providing a high octane ride of Barossa goodness supported by ample but open knit tannins. Barossa fans will lap this up.
