About The Wine

If you're looking for a Barossa bargain, then look no further than the Miette Shiraz.

Miette is the entry level label of Spinifex - one of the country's most loved cult producers and one of the leading poster boys of the 'new Barossa'.  This is a more classic offering from the ever-creative winemaking hands of Peter Schell. .

Coming from a range of high quality, old vine Barossa and Eden Valley vineyards, this has all the classic dark, rich Barossa Shiraz flavours but wrapped in an elegant, more savoury 'Spinifexy' frame.

For an everyday-drinking Barossa Shiraz with a real stamp of class, this is a no-brainer.

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

Sourced from six vineyards nestled in the Barossa and Eden Valleys, the heartland of South Australia’s wine country. Hand harvested late in the season, the fruit was fermented in a selection of open top stainless steel and oak fermenters as a blend of both whole bunches (around 20%) and fully destemmed berries. Fermentations, undertaken by indigenous yeasts, took between 7 and 12 days and were macerated for between 10 and 14 days prior to pressing. Maturation was undertaken in a selection of seasoned French oak barriques, demi-muids and 2500 l vats on light lees for 20 months prior to blending and bottling.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)

Halliday Wine Companion

"This is the self-described introduction to Spinifex wines, but don't think this is a bits-and-pieces blend of leftovers. Its bouquet is akin to that of a room with a log fire of several hours, but now quietly passing away. The red and black cherries join with satsuma plum on the palate, and a gently spicy finish." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Beware: Addictive!

A lovely medium-bodied (at least it feels like it) wine with a long palate and plenty of fruit. Goes remarkably well with a good pizza. Great value for money!

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
