Description

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.

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.

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.

96 Points - "The memory is hazy in Moppa in the northwest of the Barossa Valley. The vineyard was planted sometime in the 1940s or 1950s and managed organically for the past 40 years. It's all red plum and cherry fruit with a splash of raspberry coulis, along with hints of spice, ginger cake, earth and stone. It's concentrated but 40% whole bunches in the ferment opens the wine up beautifully, highlighting the crunchy, pure fruit, fine sandy tannin and savoury palate shape. Wonderful drinking." - Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)

Spinifex Wines

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.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
