Spinifex Wines owners and operators, Peter Schell and Magali Gely, have had a home in the Barossa Valley for over twenty years and hold a strong commitment to and passion for the Barossa. They also have a strong French connection, both physically and philosophically. Magali's family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south France, and over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy. Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance. Spinifex Wines grapes are sourced from a group of dedicated growers in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, taking advantage of the great diversity of the soils and meso-climates of the Barossa to create wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity. Sourced from six vineyards nestled in the Barossa and Eden Valleys, the heartland of South Australia’s wine country, the Spinifex Miette Shiraz 2018 is 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 de-stemmed 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. Winery Notes
