Little Giant McLaren Vale Grenache 2019

 Little Giant Grenache was crafted from a combination of older and younger vine Grenache vineyards within Seaview and Willunga. Small 3-5 tonne batches of high quality hand-picked fruit were fermented separately in open top fermenters. Minimal daily plunging ensued to gently build colour and the tannin profile without over extraction before being transferred partially to older oak and the remainder to stainless steel tank for maturation prior to blending and bottling. 

2018 Vintage: The ripening period for McLaren Vale Grenache was certainly cooler than prior years and with a couple of rain events post-Christmas the vines were less stressed. Vintage for the region was easily 3 weeks later than the year prior due to the cooler Summer and Spring with the result for Grenache this year being a standout variety. Great flavour, skin tannin and acidity balance is a direct result of the slightly 
cooler year creating exotic and fragrant wines. 

Tasting Note: This is a fleshy, succulent wine loaded with lifted dark berry fruit, spice, mineral and a hint of tar. A moreish Grenache that is plush yet medium bodied and finishes long with fruit flavours, fine tannins and acidity. 

Min Quantity: 3
