About The Wine

Spinifex frontman Peter Schell is most known for his reds, but 'Lola' has to be one of the most creatively conceived whites in the county.

The 2017 is a deviation in the makeup from previous Lolas. This vintage combines Semillon, Vermentino, and Clairette into a deliciously textural and vibrant table wine. Not exactly your typical Barossa blend!

The fruit comes from a selection of Barossa vineyards planted up to 110 years ago, with Pete taking the best parcels each year to craft the wine he feels the vintage warrants.

It's always a structural, savoury and textural wine, but the 2017 shows a delightful hint of herbaceousness on account of the large Semillon component I would challenge you to find a more interesting and food-friendly white blend than Lola, and considering its small production and the work Pete has put into crafting it, it really is outstanding value for money.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

In 2017 the growing season rolled out softly and evenly – no heat waves, no untimely rain, bush fires or locust plagues……. and delivered wines with bright fruit, freshness and pleasing natural balance.

Blended from old vine Semillon (58%), Vermentino (25%) and Clairette (17%) parcels all hand harvested from four different vineyards in the Barossa Valley, with varying soil types ranging from ironstone shot red clay and deep alluvial loams to classic red clay over limestone terra rossa.

Chilled fruit was macerated for up to 2 days prior to fermentation in a combination of old French oak barriques, puncheons and stainless steel. Bottled without filtration after 8 months on full lees.

Blend : Semillon (58%), Vermentino (25%), Clairette (17%)
