This shows darker plum and cherry fruit, spice and herbal tea notes adding depth to the palate. Bright acidity means it can take a good chill.

Necessity may be the mother of invention but too much time on my hands may be the father…I do believe that there is still a lot of ground to be covered in the light bright young and fruitful red space. Grenache dominant with Cinsault playing a lesser role this is a sweeter fruit version with juicy dark cherries and blood plums driving the up front with hopefully the now familiar smooth transition to a more savoury finish.

About Us

Wayne Ahrens and Suzi Hilder are the custodians of some exceedingly fine vineyards. Both from grape growing families of long standing they planted a vineyard in the Eden Valley and purchased a beautiful block of ancient vines in the Barossa Valley sub-region of Vine Vale. With patience, intelligence and sheer graft these vines are now producing grapes sought after by some of the best winemakers in Australia. A commitment to sustainable practises and certification as Biodynamic producers both in the vineyard and winery is further proof of the dedication to quality.

The excellence of the Smallfry wines is a reflection of the dedication in the vineyard. The wines are very much hand-made, non-interventionist styles with no additives and only older oak used. They showcase the regional Barossa styles in a modern, fruit focussed vein. A five star producer and “one to watch” in James Halliday’s Wine Companion Smallfry is a winery most definitely on the rise.

Sparrow & Vine
