Smallfry - 2020 Barossa Tangerine Dream
This is one of those classic, reliable, progressive examples of macerated whites in Australia. Wayne (Smallfry) is really taking the style in his stride and now in his 8th vintage of this cuvee, I think we're all seeing it in the place it's really meant to be. It celebrates the wonderful array of varieties that his grower, Ken, has cultivated and kept over the years, some of the oldest in Australia. It is layered, textural, closer to a complex Chardonnay than the more intense wines you have may have experienced in "orange" land. Perfect for a deep lover of the style, but a gateway to those who may be curious for it.
