Winemaker Ian Little spent years of his childhood in Argentina and has returned many times since to explore its wine regions. So when Ian & Suzanne decided to have some fun with a new label the signature varieties of Argentina were always the natural choice.
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.
Suzanne Little was previously winemaker for Rosemount Estate where she was responsible for their range of premium Chardonnay. Her aim with the Little Gem is to make an approachable Chardonnay that is balanced and delicious.
Little Gem wines are only produced in outstanding vintages, with the vines producing grapes of exceptional quality and balance. This wine is vivacious and zesty in its youth and will develop into a rich and complex wine with age.
It's slightly perfumed, slightly minerally and very tasty. With a richly textured palate and a touch of residual sweetness that is characteristic of the Pinot Gris style. Perfect white for salads and seafood.
This block is normally blended with Shiraz but in 2017 the juice was so delicious Ian & Suzanne decided to release a small volume under their Little Gem label. Made in a beautifully crisp, zippy style this is simply a lovely drink.
