    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. 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 wineswith balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.

    Pete Schell's Papillon was one of the first of the mod-Barossa wines to show that ripeness and depth of flavour needn't come at the expense of freshness and vineyard clarity. All these years later it remains at the very top of its game--if anything, it has never been in better form.

    Mostly grenache, some cinsault. Playful GC blend. Juicy, flirty red. Floral scents, red berries in scents and flavours, good chomp of sticky tannins, this fine, fresh feel throughout. Glistens in the palate; like sucking on a ruby. That lightness and vitality sure is appealing. A very bright, youthful expression of Barossa red, with complexity in tow. - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 93 Points
