About the Wine

Lovers of this wine, get excited. This is an absolutely stellar release of one of Australia's benchmark Rosés.

The Spinifex Rosé has become one of Australia's benchmark examples over the years and it's easy to see why. Pete schell treats the wine seriously, intentionally picking the various fruit components from vineyards up to 120 years of age and blending meticulously for his final product.

So much flavour and depth but oh so elegant and impossible to put down. Provence, eat your heart out. A no-brainer.

About Spinifex

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Bottled without filtration, the resulting wine offers the kind of vibrant perfume (of red fruit, nectarine and white flower), texture and crunchy line that were once the exclusive domaine of Provençal rosé. Pulpy fruit, crunchy raciness and a thirst slaking finish--it proves yet again that the Barossa really is a great rosé (not to mention white wine) area in waiting." - Bibendum Wines

Additional Info

From the Producer

The fruit comes from a range of dry grown Barossa vineyards, "mainly bush vines, all hand-picked--old school," chuckles Pete. In short, sites selected for their ability to produce outstanding quality rosé material (the average age of vines is 65 years old although the oldest parcels range up to 120 years of age). Grapes are hand-picked and crushed bunches were macerated for between 6 - 24 hours prior to pressing before the wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured on lees prior to bottling. Approximately 10% was matured in old French oak puncheons, the rest in tank. Bottled without filtration.

Blend : Grenache (54%), Mataro (28%), Cinsault (18%)
ABV : 13%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2020
