About

A project more than a decade in the making here from Spinifex main man, Pete Schell.

In 2005 Pete secured some Shiraz from a vineyard that, at the time, was 107 years old. He put the Shiraz to barrel for three years, added some small portions from the 2006 and 2007 vintages, then left the wine on lees for almost a decade before finally discorging the first batch of, what is now, a phenomenal Sparkling Shiraz.

This is the quintessential Barossan Sparkling Red. A classic Australian wine style done with Pete’s Midas touch. If you are a fan of Shiraz in this format, you simply must try this. It’s unreal drinking with some serious X-factor.

What It Tastes Like

It’s an elegant, mature Shiraz with a very fine fizz. There’s brick dust tannin which sets the backdrop here. Leathery, savoury, black berries and earth. It’s at the peak of its charisma now and still looks remarkably fresh. It’s very, very good. Hedonistic in a way and just a dead serious version of the style. Well played Mr. Schell.
