Spinifex is a gem of a producer based in the Barossa Valley. Through share farming and good relationships they have access to some great vineyard sites which they use to craft their wines. There is a strong focus on the sandier soils of the Barossa so they make lighter, more aromatic and elegant wines (by Barossa standards of course). Pete and Magali really craft their wines to reflect a sense of place, have texture and savoury qualities. Whats more the wines age remarkably well if you give them a chance.
This represents the Shiraz from Spinifex that doesn’t fit into their other blends. When your ‘left overs’ are embarrassing other producers Grand Vin you know you are making great wine. This is the case here. It embraces the texture, savouriness and vibrancy that is classic Spinifex but it is perhaps a bit lighter and more simple. It is however, extremely drinkable and such great value.
