Spinifex Papillon 2019
Spinifex Papillon 2019 vintage draws from two exceptionally old vineyards. The Grenache comes of vines circa 1890 and the Cinsault comes from re-Great War vines (1910). This fruit is de-stemmed and fermented as whole berries. Each vineyard is hand harvested when just ripe to ensure natural acids, spice, freshness, and the edgier tannins are preserved. The resulting wine has cleansing acidity, crunch texture, savoury grip, and perfectly integrated with the wine's generous fruit giving a delicious sense of balance.
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.
