About

The Spinifex Rosé has become one of Australia’s benchmark examples over the years and it’s easy to see why. Peter treats the wine seriously, intentionally picking the various fruit components from vineyards up to 100 years of age and blending meticulously for his final product.

The unique blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Mataro and Ugni Blanc adds so much depth and interest, and with the application of lees stirring, 10% oak and partial malolactic fermentation in the winemaking process it has plenty of texture and complexity without sacrificing any of the style’s aromatics and freshness.

Gary Walsh rated the 2016 vintage 94 points, calling it “a thirst quenching beauty through and through.” This is a gorgeous wine, and without question one of the country’s finest Rosés from one of its most innovative artisan producers.

What It Tastes Like

“Cherry, rosehip, and a dusting of fennel, spice and earth. Medium bodied, dry and almost chalky in texture, with redcurrant and cherry, delivered in savoury style. Acidity lends a bit of crunch, and gee, it’s a thirst quenching beauty through and through. Tops.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
