Smallfry Tangerine Dream 2022 (Vegan Friendly)
Barossa Valley, Australia
Colour: Deep golden orange, a fair bit cloudy.
Aroma: Citrus peel and spice blend with baser notes of oatmeal and brown rice.
Palate: Full and dry, grainy tannin make this the red drinkers white, multi layered, rewards time in the glass.
Summary: Orange wine lite? Bridges the gap between something like an oaky chardonnay and the more confronting skin contact whites out there.
SMALLFRY – Barossa Valley
Smallfry wines is a partnership in business and life between Suzi Hilder and Wayne Ahrens. They are viticulturists bitten by the winemaking bug, the chance to turn their own fruit into wine is too good to pass up. That they are also foodies drives their winemaking down a certain path. Natural ferments, nil to minimal adjustment, old oak a soft hand in the cellar allows the vineyard to speak. The style is food friendly, Euro style, with a eye to balance and subtlety.
