Add this to your list of must-try Barossa blends! Spinifex is one of Australia's true pioneer producers. 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. As Peter explains, the Papillon is all about_ "capturing the fresh spice, fruit and herb aromas and flavours of Grenache and Cinsault in a supple, medium weight wine." To achieve this he picks the fruit fractionally before full ripeness, with the 90-year-old vineyards providing plenty of flavour and concentration. Bright, fresh and pure, this is a great example of the 'new Barossa' and just incredible value. Campbell Mattinson awarded it 93 points, at the same time labelling Spinifex as "one of Australia's premier producers." Hard to argue with wines like this.

What it Tastes Like

"Incredibly perfumed with lifted blueberry, strawberry and lavender notes. The palate is super pure, vibrant and juicy with those same, red and blue fruits and southern French florals. Grenadine as well. Really bright and racy, this a wine built of fragrance (on both the nose and the palate). It would do a top southern Rhone producer proud. 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." - Bibendum Wines
