Australia welcomes Little Pig Rosé just in time for summer

Award-winning vigneron and founder of The Flying Winemaker, Eddie McDougall has launched Little Pig Rosé: a Shiraz, Sangiovese, and Merlot blend from Margaret River

Appreciating Australia’s penchant for Provence-style rosés, McDougall is looking forward to introducing a dry drop of floral aromatics with ripe summer berries, and crisp apple notes to the palate.

 

The name ‘Little Pig’ pays homage to McDougall’s Chinese heritage and is a tribute to his late grandmother, who nicknamed him ‘xiǎo zhū’ as a child, which directly translates in English to ‘little pig’. Coincidentally, the rosé launches in the same year as the Lunar calendar’s Year Of The Pig.

 


“This is a special moment for me, my family, and the entire Flying Winemaker team. Little Pig Rosé was made with the summer lifestyle in mind – and we know Aussies will appreciate the quality, style and taste as we speed towards summer,” says McDougall. 

 

McDougall has been instrumental in changing the way wine is perceived, enjoyed and shared in Asia, and this continues his commitment to celebrating quality wine Down Under.
