A Bête Noir is the bane of one's existence, here referring to the multitude of small parcels that go into this blend. Pete Schell's Spinifex Bete Noir 2018, is a blend 70% old vine Barossa Shiraz and 30% Eden Valley Shiraz sourced from vines located across a variety of Barossa's sub-regions, with the Eastern foothills, Moppa, Moculta, and the Eden Valley all contributing. Vineyard age ranges between 25 and 120 years, with "60 years being a fair average across the blend," according to Schell. 

All fruit is hand harvested. The proportion of whole clusters varied from "everything to nothing" depending on the vineyard, with roughly 35% in the final blended cuvée. Vinified with indigenous yeast fermentation, élevage on lees in new (25%) and seasoned French oak barrels ranging in capacity from 225-litre to 2,500-litre for 20 months prior to bottling without filtration.
