About

Spinifex are one of the pioneers of the ‘new Barossa’ producer.

Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.

Unlike many of Spinifex’s wines though, ‘Bete Noir’ is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz. But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa’s cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.

This has a distinctive ‘old world’ feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.

What It Tastes Like

There is a dense core of blackberry and currant fruit framed by a savoury, field mushroom character on the nose. The spice from the Eden fruit is on show but not intrusive. Slinky and mooreish tannins and gorgeous mouth-filling fruit. I could drink this every day.
