About The Wine
If you're looking for a Barossa bargain, then look no further than the 2016 Miette Shiraz.
Miette is the entry level label of Spinifex - one of the country's most loved cult producers and one of the leading poster boys of the 'new Barossa'. This is a more classic offering from the ever-creative winemaking hands of Peter Schell. Coming from a range of high quality, old vine Barossa and Eden Valley vineyards, this has all the classic dark, rich Barossa Shiraz flavours but wrapped in an elegant, more savoury 'Spinifexy' frame.
We think this is the best release of this wine so far, and for an everyday-drinking Barossa Shiraz with a real stamp of class, this is a no-brainer.
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.
