Tremayne Smith studied to be a chef. Influenced by his father's love of wine, he then decided to take up a career in winemaking and graduated in 2007. After an internship at De Trafford, he was employed full time as the assistant winemaker and vineyard manager for Sijnn, later Mullineux, and now as winemaker at Fable.

In 2014 Tremayne started his own project - The Blacksmith, which is still a very small production label, using varieties that he has a great respect and appreciation for. What inspired The Blacksmith was working with cultivars such as Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache, both locally and during his travels abroad. The Blacksmith's philosophy is to make natural wines that are both appealing and soul-satisfying.

We love this wine. Not much single varietal cinsault on the market and when winemakers get it right it's so good. Well Tremayne has got it very right! This leaps out with sunny red fruits and a melange of fine crushed spices. The palate zips along on with racy acidity that cuts crystaline through the wild and plush, red berry fruits. There is a wild floursih to this wine we love and it has so much character while remaining so ewasy to enjoy. PWS
