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.
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.
