Proving that Barossa wines can be elegant, restrained, packed full of flavour and ever so drinkable.

All of the Spinifex wines are just fun! Beautifully crafted and loaded with personality. They can be playful and ready to just enjoy without getting too cerebral. Equally, they can be serious when they need to be. No matter which they always have a great core of fruit as their backbone.

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

From Pete

“Crafted from a range of old vine, dry grown Grenache and Cinsault, (90 years of age average) located in the east and far northern reaches of the Barossa Valley. Each vineyard is hand harvested when just ripe to ensure natural acids, freshness, spice and the fresher edgier tannins are preserved. Incredibly perfumed and lifted strawberry, blueberry and lavender.

The palate is super pure, vibrant and juicy with those same red and blue fruits and southern French florals. This is a wine built of fragrance on both the nose and the palate. A deliciously crunchy texture, cleansing acidity and savoury grip, is somehow perfectly integrated with the wine’s generous fruit giving a surreal sense of balance. As always, the wine is naturally fermented with a portion of whole bunches (30%) and pulled out of old wood after six months.”
