2020 Smallfry Rosé
The 2020 Smallfry Rosé is light yet textural, bright while also dense with flavour, a refreshing wine and a bit different from your garden variety rosé.
Smallfry wines is a partnership in business and life between Suzi Hilder and Wayne Ahrens. They are viticulturists bitten by the winemaking bug, the chance to turn their own fruit into wine was too good to pass up. Natural ferments, nil to minimal adjustment, old oak a soft hand in the cellar allows the vineyard to speak. The style is food friendly, Euro style, with a eye for balance and subtlety.
The essential component of all the Smallfry wines is great fruit, they are lucky enough to own two very special vineyards, one in Eden Valley and the other in Vine Vale in the valley floor. The Eden Valley vineyard has been established since 1994, while the Vine Vale block has been the Schlieb’s family seat for generations.

What is natural wine?
The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.
Are your wines vegan friendly?
In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.
Are your wines chemical free?
In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
