Spinifex Aglianico 2018 South Australia Barossa Valley
Spinifex Aglianico 2018 The palate is juicy, soft in a way, touched by sweet-sour fruit character, fine sheath of tannins, tangy acidity and good swirl of gummy tannin.
Spinifex Aglianico 2018
Sour and ripe cherry scents, a touch of raspberry lolly, green herbs and faint fennel. The palate is juicy, soft in a way, touched by sweet-sour fruit character, fine sheath of tannins, tangy acidity and good swirl of gummy tannin. This is great fun to drink, it feels, with detail in tow. Very nicely done.” – Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
It has an expressive and pure nose full of red fruits, herbs and smoke. The palate is medium-bodied a whirlpool of energy and drive, with more red berries and all sorts of herbs and mixed spices swirling through the mouth. There is a tightness to its structure but layers of flavour to go with it. Refreshing, elegant wine, savoury-edged that both raw and polished
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.
Magali’s family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south France, and over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy.
Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance.
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 wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.
