Smallfry Isolar Riesling Roussanne 2021 (6 Bottles) Barossa Valley

$258.00 GST Included

AUSTRALIA WIDE SHIPPING INCLUDED

Following on from the success of Tangerine Dream I have become quite interested in the concept of fuller bodied whites. This represents a more traditional approach, whole bunch basket pressed and straight to barrel for fermentation and maturation on gross lees. Because we picked later for riper spectrum flavours it is the Roussanne that gives the freshness and acidity while the Riesling plays a juicier, fruitier role.
Colour: Yellow/gold, refined or filtered.

Honeysuckle, tropical fruit, grapefruit pith, medicinal eucalyptus lollies, lots going on.

Fresh and juicy up front leading to quite a broad mid palate with the furniture showing up on the back to add length.

A robust wine like this needs something that can match it in palate weight, butter chicken perhaps.

Description

About Smallfry

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.
