About The Wine
Some of the biggest names in the “Next Gen” Barossa wine scene have been getting fruit from Wayne and Suzi for years. Tom Shobbrooke, Taras Ochota, Peter Schell of Spinifex; guys at the top of their game and they know good fruit when they see it.
Over the last few years, the Smallfry team have been holding onto some of their own fruit to start making small amounts of their own wines, and the juice they are churning out is brilliant. Case in point is their 2016 Rosé - this is one of the most delightful Rosé wines we have come across in a while.
Made from Cinsault, Grenache and “just a lick of Mataro“, this trumpets the friendliness of natural wines to all those that will hear it.
What It Tastes Like
Orange peel, ginger, sweet macerated cherries and cardamon pods. This smells brilliant! The palate is alive with a creamy bed of sweet red berries, slick cleansing acidity and a whisper of glossy tannin. Yum. No, seriously, this is insanely delicious.
90 points. “This is a cloudy rose. It’s not your standard fare. It has energy but it feels relaxed. It’s spicy and strawberried with red apple, fresh fennel, yeast and sordid blossomy notes. It has interest and plenty of it, but mostly it’s a guzzling style.”

Smallfry has been one of the secret weapons of some of the Barossa’s most iconic producers for years. The amazing array of varieties that they grow on their ancient organic and biodynamic vineyards have been coveted by the likes of Peter Schell, Taras Ochota and more recently Barossa up-and-comer Steve Crawford of Frederick Stevenson.
Over the last few years, owners and viticulturists Wayne Aherns and Suzi Hilder have gotten the winemaking bug and ventured out on their own. Their wines are some of the more refreshing and original styles of vino you are likely to find in this historic region. Explore their range with an open mind, this is Barossa 2.0!
The Barossa has a big reputation. Big in every sense of the word. Known for producing blockbusting examples of impenetrable old vine Shiraz and Grenache envied by much of the world, it is a region that should be celebrated as the region that first put Australian wine on the map. Now, with a new generation of winemakers reinventing the region, there’s more than just power in the Barossa’s bag of tricks. With a move toward picking earlier and pulling back on oak maturation, there’s a fresher, more subtle side to Barossa wine which offers plenty to the modern Australian wine lover.
