Smallfry 2014 Barossa Valley Schlieb's Garden

This is a truly Rhone-esque expression, a blend of Grenache, Mataro, Shiraz, Cinsault, Marsanne, and Rousanne. This wine really broadened my perspective on Australia and taught me there's more than just Shiraz in Barossa Valley! There's spice and heartiness from the Grenache and Mataro, bright aromatics from the Cinsault, and nice freshness from the Marsanne and Roussane. It definitely reminds me of a classic Rhone red, and even has some of the 'garrigue' notes we associate with Languedoc wines. Organic and Biodynamic certified since 2014, the folks at Smallfry are doing a really great job, and this wine is a perfect example.
