About The Wine

Nicholas Crampton has a knack for knocking out quality wines at an incredible price. Here's another straight up bargain from this serial wine entrepreneur.

The Little Giant label falls under his Fourth Wave wine umbrella. These wines are made to be rich, bold and full bodied yet maintain great drinkability.

This tasty little McLaren Vale Grenache is all those things and more. 

Think ripe red raspberries dripping in creamy milk chocolate and you're heading in the right direction.

In essence, it's the perfect mid-week Grenache.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Like the might of the little wombat, Little Giant is crafted from premium regional South Australian fruit from established vineyards that deliver character and interest well above their size and weight.

Hand-crafted and made with minimal additions and preservatives, these are wines made of the vineyard. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, minimally handled in the winery and fruit vibrancy is not hidden by non-essential artefact. Seeking first and foremost fruit expression, drinkability and to be a great accompaniment to food. Don’t let the size fool you, these are wines you’ll want to drink.

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.

Blend : Grenache (100%)
ABV : 14.5%
Closure : Screw cap
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"This is modern, fine and flavoursome Grenache wine that is both mouth-filling yet of moderate weight and with terrific intensity. Youthful red and dark berry fruit enclosed in tight-knit tannins and driven long by berries, vanilla and fresh spice flavours." - Nicholas Crampton

Superb wine with dangerous quaff abilities

One of the nicest Grenache I had for a long time. This wine is made in an early drinking style, youthful and extremely animating. The wine has not seen any new oak and is superbly balanced. A perfect example of the new McLaren Vale Grenache style, where vibrant fruit is the main player.

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
