Smidge Wines is the private label of one of Australia’s most exciting wine making talents, Matt Wenk. While he is best known for his role as Chief Winemaker at the highly acclaimed Two Hands stable, Smidge Wines continue to show Matt’s talent.
At Smidge, we try to find the very finest parcels fruit and transform them into small volume, world class wines that show exceptional varietal and regional definition. At days end, our goal is to give those who really appreciate wine something that is singularly enjoyable, truly special and uniquely memorable.Hand made…barrel selected.
The wine has a black core with a deep red rim. There are elegant aromas of red/black fruits and spicy, earthy notes with hints of grilled meats, graphite and controlled oak. On the palate the fruit continues with rich plums and blueberries with delicate spice and chocolate which all roll onto a juicy palate with fine tannins that go on and on..
Slightly deeper colour - crimson-purple - than the Adamo; an intense, complex and multi-layered full-bodied wine, ranging through licorice, plum, prune, blackberry and vanilla, fruit, oak and tannins in a seamless stream largely keeping the alcohol at bay.
