2018 Spinifex Miette Shiraz Barossa – The Miette Shiraz is always superb value and this 2018 is no different. The core of the fruit for this wine came from six key vineyards in Ebenezer, Bethany, Tanunda and Moppa–serious Barossa terroirs that have delivered bold, honest and deep Shiraz flavours and structure. Schell has also blended in some wines from the higher country of the Barossa Ranges and Eden Valley in order to bring freshness. All of the grapes were hand-harvested and fermented wild with an average of 20% whole bunches. Aging was undertaken in a range of French oak vessels of 225 to 2,500 litres capacity, and some in steel. The wine was bottled 20 months after vintage.
An aromatic, high toned, medium weight Barossa Shiraz. Spiced cherry, mulberry, dried cranberries, curry leaf, green peppercorn and beetroot aromas overlay warmer plum and chocolate notes on the nose. Mid weight and fresh on the palate which displays spiced red fruits, dried herb and savoury dried woody spice flavours.
Classically Barossa and yet fresh and juicy and all the better for it!
