The Pedra Branca Sauvignon Blanc is machine harvested, great flavour at low baume and good acid, the fruit was pressed with only the free run being used.

After settling, the juice (with some fluffy lees) was transferred to new tight grain French barrique, fermented with indigenous yeast and then sat on lees with occasional battonage until Nov 2013, bottled in Dec 2013. The nose and palate has flinty citrus sherbet with straw and fresh creamy mealy notes,supported by a subtle herbal thread of kiwi and snow peas. Mouth-watering acidity and a textured palate, finishing long, fresh and balanced. Drink until 2020.

94 Points – “A barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc that has attitude, heaps of it. There maybe some element of fruit selection, but counter-intuitively, it seems to lift the fruit profile while still introducing the textural complexity one expects from fermentation. It’s a convincing example of the genre.” – James Halliday’s Wine Companion ’15

91 points – “The Pedra Branca Sauvignon Blanc has an interesting flavour profile. It’s low alcohol and zesty/racy as a result, but there are sweet barley sugar-like fruit notes amid grass and wood smoke. Both complex and crowd pleasing at once. Intensity it has in spades, length too, though the wine’s fruity exuberance sets you back on your heels a bit. It’s not a wine to be passed over at speed; it makes you take notice of it.” – Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, July ’14

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. It is Australia’s most vibrant cool climate wine region. With over 90 wine labels and 48 cellar doors, it is acknowledged internationally for its distinctive premium wines, viticulture and stunning scenery.

Pedra Branca, meaning white rock, is a 2.5 hectare outcrop 25 kms to the South of Tasmania and has been used as the inspiration for an annual project series celebrating the forces of nature, and its capacity to create something unique and remarkable. These wines are only made in small quantities and only when interesting parcels of fruit and the resultant wines are deemed as such.

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, Smidge Wines continue to show Matt’s talent for finding outstanding vineyards that consistently deliver remarkable fruit, and transforming them to unique, small volume, world class wines.

Over the past 11 years, Matt has become internationally celebrated in winemaking, with a globally-unmatched achievement of 10 consecutive spots in Wine Spectator’s top 100, including five positions in the top 11 and a number two position.
