A Little Giant doing its bit for native wildlife


 Little Giant Wine has partnered with wildlife rescue organisation WIRES to support the work it does in rescuing and treating wombats who are facing increasing threats from habitat loss, vehicle collisions and disease.

Little Giant Wine’s birthplace is South Australia, where the southern hairy-nosed wombat reigns and features as one of the seven emblems of the state. 

“Just like the wombat, little Giant Wine appears small and unassuming but is full of character," says Ross Marshall, general manager, Fourth Wave Wine.


"It is therefore very fitting for us to offer our support to WIRES to help these magnificent native creatures survive, grow and thrive.” 


The funding received from the sales of Little Giant goes towards helping WIRES, who help thousands of wombats who have suffered injuries from bushfires, vehicle collisions and a commonly occurring skin infection, mange, which if left untreated can cause a slow and painful death.

 

“We are incredibly grateful for the support of Little Giant Wine, whose contribution enables our volunteers to help sick and injured wombats grow up and live happy and healthy lives,” said Leanne Taylor, the CEO of WIRES.

 

Little Giant Wine is made from grapes grown in the Barossa, Eden Valley, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. The wines are made with minimal additions and preservatives. 


Little Giant Shiraz has achieved almost cult-like status with many of our customers who love it for its generosity of rich fruit flavours, its softness and serious drinkability," said Marshall. 


"A small and integrated addition of cooler grown, more elegant fruit of the Eden Valley to the blend gives added lift and freshness and our preference is for maturation time in older oak to add subtle vanilla and earthy notes that sit in support rather than upfront.” 

 

Little Giant Barossa Shiraz is available from major liquor retailers nationally with an RRP of $22.  The range also includes:  Little Giant  Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir;  Coonawarra Cabernet, McLaren Vale Grenache and Premium Barossa Shiraz ($32).
