Spinifex is one of the most exciting Barossa Valley wineries of recent times, always hitting the seemingly perfect balance between approachable, modern wine styles while respecting the traditions of the region.
The 2020 Spinifex Garcon Grenache represents the fourth release of this wine; a "pure Grenache from old vine vineyards in the Barossa Valley and a celebration of this variety from its spiritual home in Australia."
A wine that has already attracted a large following, the 2020 Spinifex Garcon Grenache offers delicate, perfumed aromatics of ripe raspberry, cherry, redcurrant, rose petal and subtle musk notes. The youthful and approachable palate delivers plenty of redcurrants, spice and red plum skin flavours. A delicious drinking Barossa Grenache that will offer plenty of enjoyment in the short to medium term.
Spinifex is the project of New Zealand-born Peter Schell, a Roseworthy graduate who had spent several vintages working in the south of France prior to establishing Spinifex. Spinifex's focus is on producing regional wines from Mediterranean varieties - predominately reds, mainly Mataro, Grenache, Shiraz and Cinsault.
They aim to make wines that display signatures of vineyard provenance and vintage, show regional typicity, and have a consistent thread of 'house style' that reflect their preferences and experiences with wine.
Winemaking is simple and relatively non-interventional in approach. They are big believers in the primacy of the vineyard. Good sites with restricted yields and old vines picked at optimal maturity almost always deliver intense, textured wines of character. Current standouts in the range include their Indigene, Esprit, Bete Noir, La Maline, and Papillon, while great value is to be found under their Miette Range.
