$96.00 $114.00

The wines of Spinifex, from Peter Schell and Magali Geli, dance a line rarely seen in the Barossa. They dance the line between mid and full-weight with poise and finesse, all at once full and flavoursome; complex and intriguing, yet never over stepping into a race for plushness or unbridled intensity.

Esprit - Spirit en français. Red Blend that changes from vintage to vintage, a beautiful blend of Mataro, Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz

92 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front. "... it’s pure and delicious. Red licorice, black cherry, sweet spice and lavender with fistfuls of rich red earth littered throughout. It’s lively, frisky even, and yet it’s lashed with complex flavour, in the most lovely of ways. Great drinking to be had here.

Bête Noir - Black Beast en français. Small parcels of Shiraz sourced from Eden and Barossa Valleys, blended seamlessly. 

94 points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front "It’s flush with fruit but there’s a meatiness to this and its churned with tannin too, grainy tannin. Charred meats, blackberries and blueberries, a floral element and fist loads of roasted spice. It’s bold but neat, tannic but not at the expense of the overall flow. Excellent gear, this."

95 points. Huon Hooke, The Real Review. "Deep, bold purple-red colour; aromas of sweet ripe black fruits, blackberry and mulberry, vanilla/chocolate too, the palate full bodied and fruit-sweet at the core, then some astringency comes in thanks to acidity and tannin—but it's all in balance. Plenty happening here. A promising shiraz that will reward patient cellaring."

95 points, Dave Brooks, Halliday Wine Companion. "Pete Schell's Bête Noir is a shiraz blended across a selection of Barossan grounds including a portion from the cooler Eden Valley. Typically sporting a super-saturated, magenta-splashed hue with aromas of bright plum, black cherry and blueberry fruits cut with hints of violets, brown spice, ironstone, dark chocolate, smoked meats, cherry confit and earth. Glossy and impressively pure, there's ferrous edge to the tight tannins and an acid line that propels the pure fruit briskly across the palate, finishing elegant yet opulent."

Garçon - Waiter en français. A carefully crafted Grenache, letting the fruit speak for itself, creating a classic Barossa Grenache.

94 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.  "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."
