Spinifex Pappilon

Spinifex Papillon 2018

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
The 2018 Spinifex Papillon is crafted from old vine, dry grown Grenache and Cinsault that date back 90 years on average. This is a super vibrant and juicy Barossa red wine with wonderful fragrant aromatics and plenty of red and blue fruit flavours, that is reminiscent of a quality Southern Rhone red. A delicious texture savouriness, refreshing acidity and impressive intensity of flavour provides a combination that is pretty hard to resist.

Review of the 2017 vintage included below;

"Barossa Valley blend of grenache and cinsault. Super fresh. Light in colour and arguably flavour but it still offers plenty. Raspberry splashed with spice; fennel cut with earth; cloves and peppers sprinkled over the top. Dry tannin cuts a swathe throughout and most impressively so. In all it’s a great wine to drink. Rated: 92 Points Tasted: Apr18 Alcohol: 13% Price: $30 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2024" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

Spinifex of the Barossa Valley is one of the most impressive 'new comers' of Australian wine. Established in 2001, Spinifex is still very much viewed as 'a new kid on the block' given the long history of many of its Barossa counterparts.

Spinifex is the project of New Zealand-born Peter Schell, a Roseworthy graduate who had spent several vintages working in the south of France prior to establishing Spinifex. Given his time working in southern France, a focus on Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Cinsault was hardly surprising.
