About the Wine

Here's something you don't see from the Barossa every day!

The Spinifex Solana is a multi-vintage white wine aged under flor in old barrels for a minimum of four year before release.

Peter Schell, owner/purveyor of Spinifex, selects parcels of fruit from each vintage to essentially be barreled down for a solera process. It's been a long time in the making. The first fruit for this project was squirreled away during the 2005 harvest. What now sits in the bottle is unlike any white wine you are likely to have tried from the famous Barossa region.

It's a nutty, savoury, saline white golden wine with teriffic texture and extraordinary length.

A one of a kind from a one of a kind Barossa winemaker.

About Spinifex

Spinifex is one of the undercover jewels of the Barossa Valley, and very much a pioneer of the changing direction of this famous region.

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

Pete’s wines brought a new sensibility to the region; they were lower in alcohol, concentrated but elegant, and balanced to perfection. He takes the art of blending into the realm of the virtuoso.

There are few wineries who deliver refinement and poise from the Barossa Valley like Spinifex. 

These are brilliant Barossa wines.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Started in 2005 and comprised in most years of small portions of white wine parcels that are also components of Spinifex's Lola in that given vintage, the grapes are retained and matured sur lie in old barriques. The barrels are stored outside in the elements and hence the name Solana, meaning "under the sun". The composition of La Solana mirrors that of Lola over the years, being based on Barossa and Eden Valley Ugni blanc, Semillon, Vermentino, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The average age of wines in this first bottling is estimated at 4 years.

Blend : Ugni Blanc, Semillon, Vermentino, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Riesling
ABV : 12.0%
Closure : Screw Cap
Bottle Size : 750ml

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
