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 2022 Spinifex Garcon Grenache represents the latest 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 2022 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.
"93 Points. Some people love a bit of reduction in their reds; other don’t. I’m in the former camp, and this wine plays that angle beautifully. Raspberries and rust, throws of dry spice, twiggy herb notes, licorice and that smoky, earthen, slightly burnt reductive character. The flavours come both tense and sheeted; it’s a light-ish wine of juicy, taut finesse. Pricing is spot on. This is deliciously good. Personally, in an ideal world, I’d be up to my neck in this.
