When Spinifex first made the scene (so to speak) in 2001, this was one of the wines that made a big impact on what we have become to expect from new millennium Barossa Valley. Always designed around perfume, finesse and savoury structure, the make-up of Esprit changes year-on-year, while never sacrificing its 'Barossa Burgundy' tag. 


As always, the wine was sourced from a selection (eight in total) of very old vineyards, mainly in Ebenezer, Williamstown and Bethany. Vine age ranges from 75, to over 150 years, and all sites are dry-grown with minimal vineyard inputs—old vineyards grown the old way. This year's release is Mataro (41%), Cinsault (35%), Grenache (21%) and Shiraz (3%). Each parcel was fermented wild and macerations varied from between eight and 20 days. Maturation was in a combination of well-seasoned 600 and 1200 litre barrels and stainless steel. Only the Grenache component was fermented as whole clusters.

Reviews

“Aromas of bright and transparent fruit, showing ripe strawberries and flowers with orange-peel undertones. Violets, too. Medium- to full-bodied with layers of bright fruit and a lively finish. Tangy and bright.”
