Sangiovese is one of the oldest known varieties in the world. This Sangiovese is a perfect example of this accessible, ready to drink style; perfectly medium bodied with red fruit flavours and a deliciously savoury finish. TROPHY - 2017 Winewise Awards.
Barbera is a medium bodied wine with aromas of dried cherry and plums. The beautiful savoury flavours on the palate are followed by a firm acidity and lingering soft tannins.
This blend brings together the ripe, soft fruit characters of Shiraz with the savoury, liquorice flavours of Tempranillo. Both varieties are ideally suited to the Hunter Valley and this blend is set to become a classic for the Hunter region. The wine is rich and full bodied with a silky soft finish and complexity derived from the marriage of two highly compatible varieties.
Hunter Valley (60%) and McLaren Vale (40%). The savoury flavours of Hunter Valley shiraz merge with the rich, plum fruit of McLaren Vale. A great easy drinking style.
This started out as a bit of an experiment a few years ago when David wanted to see how the three Italian varieties that he made Barbera, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese would look together. The result...? A wonderful, tasty wine with complexity and finesse.
Tempranillo is a Spanish variety that is very well suited to the Hunter Valley. Varietal character of green olives, spice and a hint of tobacco with lush liquorice and cherry fruits. Tempranillo (from the Spanish temprano, meaning early) is a relative newcomer to Australia, and is capable of producing a variety of styles depending on climate and winemaking technique. The 2016 Tempranillo is a wine that is powerful yet elegant, showcasing how well suited this variety is to the Hunter Valley.
Winemaker Ian Little spent years of his childhood in Argentina and has returned many times since to explore its wine regions. So when Ian went looking for a new variety to explore, Malbec, as the signature variety of Argentina, was always the natural choice.
This blend was pioneered in the Hunter Valley in the early part of last century and is currently enjoying a welcome renaissance. Elegantly structured, the blend provides a wonderful complexity with the rich earthy tones of Hunter Valley Shiraz with the vibrancy of Pinot Noir.
They say Barbera is the most food friendly variety in the world. We agree - with its plush fruit characters of currants and blackberries and its soft, supple tannins this is a wine that is dangerously more-ish.
The best Shiraz from the Little Wine Co from the best vintage. This Little Gem release is seamless & silky with voluptuous layers of fruit and oak flavours with a core of cassis and berry flavours. Matured for 24 months in oak – it shows.
