Description

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.

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.

90 Points - "There’s a good body flavour to be tucked into here. It’s sweet fruited, all raspberry and plum, with clove and general spice notes tickling about the edges. It’s ripe/sweet and generally pretty simple but it has good, flow, feel and stuffing." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

    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!

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.
