Our Story

Marty O'Flaherty, Winemaker & Adam Smith, Viticulturist

 

They do say opposites attract and maybe this holds true when it comes to business partners as well! At least let’s hope so for the sake of "Precious Little" anyway. 

 

Marty and Adam’s friendship began some time ago when they were both working for wine entities based in McLaren Vale in South Australia and met when paired together at a Corporate Golf day. Shortly after they played cricket against each other and have been mates who have shared a friendly and sledge-filled rivalry ever since

Our Wines

We are only ever going to be a small wine company and will only make wines we know are great quality. 

We currently have available...

Precious Little 
2023 Clare Valley Riesling

This Precious Little Riesling is sourced from the iconic Clare Valley and showcases the best of the region and variety. The palate is bone dry with fresh, vibrant lemon and lime flavour along with a tart green apple appeal, sublime depth and incredible natural acidity. Like window shopping it's best enjoyed with friends on a sunny afternoon!

Precious Little 
2022 Adelaide Hills Grùner Veltliner

Sourced from a beautiful vineyard nestled between the Adelaide Hills hamlets of Lobethal and Charleston. The Grùner  Veltliner we found there was absolutely pristine, brimming with flavour. Hand-harvested, whole bunch pressed with a small portion fermented in oak to add complexity. Packed with lime and grapefruit crispness, intriguing fresh herbal notes and popping acidity. Our own little Austrian from the Adelaide Hills...Prost!

Precious Little 
2021 Langhorne Creek Grenache

A chance opportunity presented itself in the historical and very underrated Langhorne Creek region leading to our unique parcel of Precious Little Grenache . We handcrafted this small batch as a cool, open ferment, gently hand plunging to retain its freshness and rosy aromatics . The  wine was aged in old French hogsheads to preserve the plush red berry, plum & cherry fruit purity.

Precious Little
2021 Barossa Valley Nero d'Avola

Selected and hand-harvested fruit from an exquisite vineyard in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Primarily the wine is naturally fermented, followed by ten months extended maceration on skins which certainly push the winemaking boundaries and the subsequent intrigue of this wine. A final maturation in seasoned French Oak helps further soften and balance this distinctive contemporary Australian take on this Sicilian native.

Precious Little 
2020 Barossa Valley Shiraz

This Barossa Valley Shiraz has all the bells and whistles! Great pedigree fruit from a single vineyard site in the sought after Marananga sub region of the Barossa Valley. Hand-picked, cold-soaked, wild fermented then pressed to mature in a mix of new and aged French and American oak – simple. Low cropping, great soil, minimal intervention in such an instance, less is just so much more.

2018 Langhorne Creek 

Touriga Nacional

This Langhorne Creek Touriga Nacional, a native varietal of Portugal, is suited to dry and hot conditions. This is a full-bodied wine with great depth and loads of blue fruit. We have softened its bold tannins with a prolonged maturation in aged French oak. 

 

Small Batch Winemaking

Learn about how Precious Little Wines are made...

Small batch winemaking is exactly as it sounds, a small batch of wine made from a small parcel of grapes. Perhaps a more pertinent question is what separates small batch winemaking from wine produced on a larger or commercial scale? The answer is pretty simple in that with small batch winemaking you have in the words of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas ‘nowhere to run to, baby, nowhere to hide’ if it doesn’t work. Suffice to say if you stuff up it stands out like the veritable dogs’ bollocks and there’s no blending it out to hide it away!
