About The Wine

The 'Little Monster' is an experiemental look a whole berry ferment on old bush vine Greanche from a cooler Barossa Valley site.

The ferment goes over more than six weeks in a sealed up bin. The berries slowly releasing their bright, bubblegummy aromas and flavours.

It's a light and bubbly Grenache with a wild personality.

A super cool and funky look at Grenache from Jaysen Collins, a side step from his usual sturdy and 'classically' styled Barossa Valley wines.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Pops with cherry and poached strawberry flavours, a tickle of spice and fine fluffy tannins. There's some grunt there too. A sinewy backbone to the wine and plenty of energy and zip across the palate. Such a smashable expression of Grenache. Mad fun to drink. Awesome. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

THE 2017 LITTLE MONSTER IS SOURCED FROM TWO OLD VINE VINEYARDS LOCATED ON THE GENTLE SLOPES OF THE ANGASTON FOOTHILL LINE IN THE BAROSSA VALLEY.

AT AN ELEVATION OF 350M ABOVE SEA LEVEL, COOLING GULLY BREEZES AND A SANDY SOIL BASE ENSURE GRAPES ARE RIPENING AT A STEADY PACE.

DUE TO THE ANCIENT, GNARLED VINEYARD'S AGE, ALL WORK IS CARRIED OUT MANUALLY. GRAPES ARE HAND HARVESTED AND FERMENTED AS WHOLE BUNCHES.

ON RECEIVAL THE CLUSTERS ARE GENTLY TRANSFERRED INTO A VARIABLE CAPACITY TANK WITH A DECENT WHACK OF DRY ICE, TO ENSURE ANAEROBIC ENVIRONMENT FOR FERMENT. THE LID IS LOCKED DOWN AND LEFT TO SPONTANEOUSLY FERMENT OVER A SIX WEEK PERIOD.

ONCE THE LID IS LIFTED, THE AROMATIC 'LITTLE MONSTER' GETS A FOOT TREADING OVER THE NEXT WEEK TO RELEASE THE REMAINING JUICE FROM THE BERRIES.

ONCE ALL THE SUGAR IN THE SKINS RE-KICKS THE FERMENT, THE WINE FINISHES FERMENT IN OLD FRENCH OAK WOOD.

NO FINING, FILTRATION AND A TOUCH OF SO2 IS THE PASSAGE TO BOTTLE.
