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.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

In the extreme north west corner of the Barossa Valley is a small, old vineyard planting of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro. Planted sometime in the 1940’s or 50’s, its owned and cared for by an older Bachelor who has grown up on the block – it’s been managed organically for around 40 years. Whilst the 2018 Moppa Grenache is the first Grenache selection that we’ve bottled as a single vineyard wine, we’ve made wine from the vineyard since 2005.

Hand harvested and fermented (with 40% whole bunches retained) in a stainless steel open fermenter. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, the must was gently pumped over during the early phase of fermentation with pigeage and treading prior to pressing at 16 days.

Blend : Grenache (100%)

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

"Displays delicate and perfumed aromatics of ripe raspberry, cherry, red currant, rose petal, lilly and discrete white pepper and musk notes. Polished and feminine. Youthful, mid-weight palate, strong red currant, rhubarb and red plum skin flavours. Plum skin acids and fine sandy tannins drive the finish. A classically proportioned juvenile Grenache." - Peter Schell, owner/winemaker

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
