About The Wine
Spinifex has helped redefine the modern Barossa Valley.
Winemaker Peter Schell is a master blender, constantly searching for balance and a more refined vision of the Barossa.
The Indigene is a classic Rhone Valley blend of Shiraz & Mataro , sourced from six vineyards averaging 70 years of age.
The 2013 follows in the 2012's footsteps being a more delicate and vibrant wine than in previous years, but it certainly doesn't lack power or complexity.
With 96 points from James Halliday, 94 points from Mike Bennie on release, and now a little extra time in bottle, this wine is really coming into its own.
Spinifex are one of the 'New' Barossa's true pioneer producers.
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.
Spinifex was on the front line of the new wave of Barossa producers. Peter'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.
