Much more in the vein of Bandol than Cotes de Provence...
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. Bandol, eat your heart out. A no-brainer.
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.
