Smallfry, ‘Stella Luna’ 2020
23 in stock
The lighter side of Barossa. An ingenious blend of older plantings of Shiraz, and new plantings of Cinsault, a drought resistant variety, perfect for the dry heat of Barossa.
Early harvesting keeps the alcohol levels low (12%), and the wine soft, fruity, fresh and oh so drinkable.
Floral notes of violets, fresh raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant fruits, with some meaty and gamey hints. Bright acidity and low tannin makes this a refreshing wine, suitable for sipping or a good match for spicy foods and lighter meats.
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.
