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 in to unique, small volume, world class wines. Matt and his wife Trish decided to name their venture Smidge to celebrate their passion for making wine in small batches.
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 2 position.
The Houdini wines are an attractively priced entry level series.
Smidge White Label is the heart of the Smidge range and all wines are straight varietals.
The Pedra Branca wines are only made in small quantities and only when interesting parcels of fruit and the resultant wines are deemed as such.
Smidge ‘S’ Shiraz celebrates the origin of Smidge with an extremely limited release wine that promises only the very best of Barossa Shiraz.
Smidge’s Magic Dirt Shirazes are inspired by the various subregions’ terroir of South Australia’s Barossa Valley. These wines are very limited.
