While Spinifex has certainly amassed a formidable reputation for producing some of the country's leading examples of Rhone-inspired reds and whites, Peter Schell is no slouch with when it comes to knocking out a top-notch example of an emerging variety either. This is a single vineyard Tempranillo from the foothills of the Barossa Valley. It's picked early, destemmed, fermented wild and bottled without fining or filtration. The first release of a straight Tempranillo from the Spinifex duo is as you might expect, a combination of just the right amount of precision and drinkability. With this release, Pete is searching for freshness and varietal character - he's nailed it. A great addition to the Spinifex range and yet another feather in Pete's very feathery cap.

What it Tastes Like

Fine structure, freshness and vitality, here. Acidity on point, savoury tannins build through the wine. Raspberry, plums and strings of dried herb on the nose. Tightly wound up and focused but not overly serious. Fresh bitter finish is a lovely note to leave you with. Very tidy wine which feels precise yet easy to enjoy.
