'S' by Smidge Wines
The Smidge 'S' celebrates the origin of Smidge Wines each year with an extremely limited release wine that promises only the very best of Barossa Shiraz. Each year, acclaimed winemaker Matt Wenk, tastes through all barrels and selects the very best shiraz for his flagship wine. The first release in 2002 was nominated for the George Mackay Trophy - Australia's best exported wine. Since then Smidge 'S' has consistently returned 94+ points from the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion. The elegant bottle and minimalist labeling makes this an attractive and highly desirable gift for those who know their wine.

The Smidge Wines S celebrates the origin of Smidge with an extremely limited release wine that promises only the best of Barossa Shiraz. Each year, Matt tastes through all the barrels and selects the very best for this flagship wine. The first release was nominated for the George Mackay Trophy as Australia's Best Exported Wine. Smidge S has consistently returned 94+ point wines since Matt created that first vintage back in 2002. In the glass, the ‘S’ 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. The elegant bottle with minimalist labelling makes this an attractive and highly desirable gift for those who know their wine and love shiraz.
A beautifully made wine that is textural, impeccably detailed and undeniably salubrious. Plenty in the tank. ned Goodwin MW Published 31 March 2021
