Smalltown Vineyards

The wishbone is broken between two people whilst each make a silent wish - the one who gets the bigger half also gets their wish (supposedly!). We liked the bony-ness of the name, the structure beneath that holds the wine altogether.

Production

Bottled after 10 months in oak. Fruits comes from vineyards around the Barossa. The wine is partly tank fermented and partly aged in oak, with a small new oak component. The blend (75% Shiraz 15% Grenache 7% Petite Sirah 3% Carignan) is put together to be a juicy drinkable red that has some depth and complexity often missing at this price point.

Tasting notes

This is a bright, bloody Shiraz from old river land vines blended with Barossa Cabernet that gives the nose a grapite, leafy lift. A South Australian classic the palate reflects the rich iron source soils with notes of ripe, fresh red cherries with a touch of star anise from the local eucalypt influence.

Food match

Great with roast beef or lamb, as well as grilled meats and BBQs.
