About
... wow, what a beautiful wine.

About The Wine

The Miette range is the perfect entry point to the excellent wines of Peter Schell and Spinifex.

Here you get the skill and craft of one of the Barossa's finest winemakers at a bargain basement price.

This is a blend of Grenache, Mataro and Cinsault, built for immediate drinkability. The 2015 is as quaffable as any red you will see at this price but with more class than most.

James Halliday awarded it 95 points. This is one of the best value blends in the Barossa.

About Spinifex

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.

Halliday Wine Companion

"58% grenache, 32% mataro, 10% cinsaut is the final blend and wow, what a beautiful wine. Not the most complex but for sheer drinking pleasure, it's right up there, as lofty as the aromatics of red licorice, musk, menthol and spice. Silky sensation to the tannins, a bit of grunt too, and a lively acid kick to finish." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

All fruit was hand-harvested from old Barossa Valley vineyards.

The fermentations were carried out with indigenous yeast in small open fermenters, with 30% as whole bunches, prior to gentle pressing and maturation on light lees.

All the components were matured in seasoned French oak and stayed on light lees--which helps retain fruit freshness and preserves natural tannin--prior to blending and further maturation in tank prior to bottling. 

Blend : Grenache (58%), Mataro (32%), Cinsault (10%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml
