The Beal & Co. Little White is a wild fermented Chenin Blanc, hand picked from a single vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Winemaker Callum Beal loves to champion an underdog, Merlot being his pet Red variety, so it comes as no surprise that he would back Chenin Blanc for his white. It's a crisp and tasty take on the variety, which carries a little texture from 12 months spent in barrel prior to bottling. This is a lovely alternative to classic dry whites. A smashable Chenin if ever there was one.
What it Tastes Like
Fresh and frisky with a fruit salad of flavour backed by subtle texture from the barrel work. There's green apple, custard apple, pineapple and a trimming of spice. The hint of toastiness keeps things interesting. Great little Chenin there from Callum.

About the Producer
Beal & Co
Beal & Co. is the new venture of Adelaide Hills winemaker Callum Beal. After working for years with many of the region’s top winemakers Callum’s gone out on his own, crafting tiny quantities of wine from his family vineyard. His focus is, for the moment, on Merlot, with the emphasis in his words being on making “wines with purity, concentration, and style with an emphasis on site.” An exciting producer to watch.

The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
