Little Beauty produce a range of bespoke, independent wines from the elemental and unique Waihopai Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand: a spectacular place where the people are passionate about making refreshing and expressive wines. Although their first vintage was only produced in 2008, the Little Beauty wines have quickly risen to become highly scored and rewarded, proving that good old Kiwi passion and pride makes for perfect inspiration. The wines are only ever available as a limited release that make up 0.00055% of the global wine market, meaning each bottle is a truly personable and friendly experience.
The palate is poised, refined, silky and beautifully sweet fruited. A core of ripe cherry, plum, raspberry liquorice finishing with hints of cinnamon. Delicious on release but will evolve to show more depth and complexity with careful cellaring.
