Smallfry winery: partnership between a couple
Owned by Suzi Hilder and Wayne Ahrens, Smallfry Wines is a partnership between the couple. Both of them are viticulturists who are passionate about winemaking. Growing their own fruits and making fine wines out of them is how the couple has shaped their passion into a reality. The wines at the Smallfry stand out as they use natural ferments, nil to minimum adjustments and old oak barrels which adds to the taste.

Biodynamic winemaking takes place
The Smallfry winery are certified as Australian Certified Organic for its Biodynamic processes in the entire estate. What makes them stand out from the rest of the wineries in the Barossa winemaking community is that they rely on wild yeast to conduct the primary alcoholic ferment. It is a rather time taking process, however, it gives a more unique, fruity flavor profile to the wines.
