About The Wine

Peter Schell rarely sits still, and here we have yet another innovative drop from one of our favourite winemakers - Spinifex’s first 100% Clairette.

Clairette is another Southern French variety - a white grape this time - that Pete regularly uses as blending component in wines like his much loved ‘Lola’. Pete loves acidity in his wines and Clairette is one of those Mediterranean varieties that so naturally holds its acidity and retains freshness.

There’s only a handful of 100% Clairettes in Australia, and it comes as no surprise that Pete has been able to coax something special out of the grape. It’s Barossa-born and made very naturally, and definitely one to try for lovers of textural whites with a point of difference.

What It Tastes Like

On the nose, subtle perfume of rose petal and quince, green apple and hints of fennel. On the palate, minerality is to the fore, with subtle savoury notes and a herbal edge of fennel on the palate. This wine is all about texture and length of palate.
