2020 Smallfry Tangerine Dream
We're big fans of Wayne's tasting notes, so here they are:
With the release of our 8th vintage of this wine I really feel like I am achieving what I want to see from this style. An opportunity to celebrate the diversity of Ken’s vineyard in a way that he and his contemporaries could scarcely imagine while staying true to the roots of winemaking. Tasting the range of orange wines at Rootstock was a seminal moment for me similar to my first experience of wild yeast fermentation back in 2002. Our place is probably the last to have plantings of Pedro, Semillon and Riesling in the whole Barossa, the majority of these vines saw out the first world war and were too old for call up so this wine gives them a reason for being and a reinvention.
