"Deep red clay/loam mottled with small pieces of quartz and ironstone. The wine expands on the back-palate and finish with ripe, persistent tannins. The shape of the wine in the mouth is wider than its Barossa siblings, but not as piercing. Dark chocolate makes a mark, but not to extremes."

"From a block of red-brown clay loam with small pieces of ironstone and quartz. It is a wine of extreme length, rich with black and blue fruits, yet it achieves this without any sign of effort. Finesse on a high level."

"From Smidge's estate vineyard, the soil deep red clay/loam with small fragments of quartz and ironstone. Standard vinification, the result, like its McLaren Vale sibling, a wine that explores every corner of the mouth, ripe, slightly fluffy tannins the standard bearers."

"This isn't a best barrels series, it's a selection of the barrel from a particular vineyard that most truly reflects the terroir of the vineyard, here 40yo vines on a west-facing slope at 360m grown by six generations, matured in 3yo French barriques for 30 months. Exotic black fruits, spices, licorice aromas and flavours. A full-bodied wine of power and intensity, the tannins akin to built-in cupboards."

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.

The Ging by Smidge Wines has a nose that is immediately alluring with black fruits and liqueur chocolate. The palate offers dark fruits with black currants and blueberries and continues with delicious chocolate, vanilla bean and spice. Matured for 22 months in French oak (7% new), the softness of the fruit and the comfort rag of chocolate do the job. Drink now and/or buy a couple of extra bottles to cellar carefully until 2030.
