Smidge Barrel Classification & Blending Trial Experience
Nestled in amongst the Smidge barrels, you will help collect barrel samples and then spend approximately 1.5 hours tasting this selection of 8 barrels of Shiraz and Cabernet sauvignon, grading them according to your palate preference. Then under the guidance of winemaker Matt, you will create your own final blend before bottling your own 750ml souvenir to take home.
This experience begins with Matt explaining Smidge’s approach to barrel classification and blending, before taking you through the different barrels to taste and grade.
Between the classification and blending exercises, enjoy a grazing plate to refresh your palate (and mind) before trying (& tasting) different combinations of barrels and varieties to come up with a blend that you love most.
Before leaving you’ll record your individual blend and bottle a 750ml sample to take home and enjoy.
