Spinifex Louis Sparkling Shiraz NV Barossa Valley – 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.
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.
This is a wine for lovers of beautifully mature Barossa Shiraz wines. The base wine was vinified from a then 107 year old Shiraz vineyard growing in deep sand in the Vine Vale sub region. Comprised almost entirely from the 2005 vintage, small proportions of 2006 and 2007 were also included in the base. Following nearly 3 years in barrel the base was tiraged and spent just under 10 years on lees prior to this first disgorgement. Liqouring at dosage (the addition of typically a younger wine and/or a sugar syrup to top up the disgorged bottles and sweeten the finished wine) has been held to the absolute minimum (approx. 3.5 g/l residual sugar) for the majority of the disgorgement. A very small lot of 72 bottles has been retained with zero dosage, this is truly a wine for the purists (if we don’t drink it all).
