It’s a ripper drink, interesting and bright.
About The Wine
The Tangerine Dream is one of the most experimental of the Smallfry wines. After sampling a few things at the Rootstock natural wine festival a couple of years ago, Wayne thought he might try his hand at making an amber wine. This is his eighth dig at the style and it's a beauty.
This skin-contact field blend of Semillon, Pedro Ximenes, Riesling, Roussanne and Muscat is the embodiment of Wayne's creative winemaking exploration, a left of centre amber wine for this region so steeped in tradition.
And quite simply, it is down-right delicious. We love it when winemakers broaden their horizons and just give something a go. Sometimes when you take a chance you can end up in a Tangerine Dream...
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 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.
