About The Wine
Where the reputation of Spinifex has been built off the back of sublime, perfectly crafted blends of varieties and vineyard across the Barossa, the gold label wines from Pete and Magali celebrate specific sites that they think deserve an individual bottling. It gives the vineyard voice a chance to be heard as a solo artist, as opposed to part of a chorus. Invariably, awesome and sometimes a-typical wines emerge.
This Grenache is gorgeous. From a single block in the north-west of the region, planted sometime in the middle of last century, these old vines produce fruit with classic Barossa power and concentration.
The power is harnessed, then polished to perfection by Schell and his team. It's A-grade Barossa Grenache for now or for the cellar.
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.
