2013 Spinifex Indigene

Spinifex has helped redefine the modern Barossa Valley.

Winemaker Peter Schell is a master blender, constantly searching for balance and a more refined vision of the Barossa.

The Indigene is a classic Rhone Valley blend of Shiraz & Mataro , sourced from six vineyards averaging 70 years of age.

The 2013 follows in the 2012's footsteps being a more delicate and vibrant wine than in previous years, but it certainly doesn't lack power or complexity.

With 96 points from James Halliday, 94 points from Mike Bennie on release, and now a little extra time in bottle, this wine is really coming into its own.

2012 Spinifex Old Vine Shiraz

This is a deviation from the usual company line from Peter Schell.

Schell made his name as a trailblazer for the 'New Barossa' style, a more 'European' slant on the traditional Barossa powerhouse. But a good winemaker is guided by the fruit, and this particular batch of fruit from an ancient Nuriootpa vineyard was set decidedly to a more 'classic' Barossa tempo. Big, dark and brooding, Schell says it reminds him of the great classic wines of Penfolds and the like.

And so this separate bottling has come to be. It may not be for the Spinifex die-hard fans, but for enthusiasts of old-school Barossa Shiraz, this will be right in their wheelhouse.

2015 Spinifex La Maline

Made in only tiny quantities, La Maline is a more elegant side of Barossa Shiraz. The fruit is sourced from four vineyards in the higher parts of the north-west Barossa, Moculta, Eden Valley and the Eastern foothills. With the deft touch we have come to expect from this producer, the fruit undergoes a wild ferment in large format oak (about 30% new) and sees a healthy dose of whole bunches and a small amount of Viognier skins for aromatic lift.

It is a pleasure to drink this wine. Finesse and intricacy combine effortlessly with the brooding power of the region. 97 points from James Halliday and all in all, a beautiful wine.

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.
