Smallfry, Joven 2020
12 in stock
Wayne Ahrens and Suzi Hilder cut their wine teeth with Jacob’s Creek, but wanted to make small batch, low intervention wine, without using systemic chemicals. So they quit their secure jobs and took on an old, mixed planted, biodynamic vineyard in Vine Vale, Barossa, which had been tended for the previous 52 harvests by Ken Schlieb.
This particular wine is a homage to the year Wayne spent in Spain in his youth. There’s tangy morello cherry and plum fruit flavours, underpinned by a near-meaty bass note. Made without added sulphites, and with soft tannins, it’s very easy to drink. Another food friendly wine – Wayne recommends trying it with paella.
