So long and effortless... So impressive.
About The Wine
The Spinifex duo, Peter Schell and Magali Gely, have purchased their own patch of the Barossa Valley on Nuriap Road.
The Dominion Grenache is the first wine from their estate vines. It's a classic Spinifex Grenache - picked at perfect ripeness, vinified carefully and released as a pure, balanced expression of grape and region.
This has plenty of flavour but remains just on the fuller side medium-bodied. It's a cavalcade of cherry, plum and sweet spices, the tannins fine but sure.
This is the quintessential modern Barossa Grenache with both freshness and flavour in equal proportion.
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.
