The Spinifex Miette Shiraz is bright, juicy and delicious, this is a Barossa Shiraz with great complexity and fruit density.
There is an abundance of red fruits and plummy notes with tantalising flashes of spice, earth and pepper. At this price, this is one of the best value Barossa Shiraz you’re likely to come across.
Spinifex is one of the most exciting Barossa Valley wineries of recent times, always hitting the seemingly perfect balance between approachable, modern wine styles while respecting the traditions of the region. Spinifex Miette Shiraz is made with the declassified parcels of Barossa & Eden Valley Shiraz that don’t make it into the Spinifex label, though there is nothing second-rate about this impressive offering.
“95 Points. Pete Schell does not have to be lectured about alcohol levels one way or the other. He is interested in balanced flavour ripeness, here achieve without apparent effort. Red fruits certainly play the main theme, but there are also some darker fruit notes linked to the ripe tannins that make up the whole. Bargain. Screwcap. 14% alc. To 2028. $22” – James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2016.
