Product Description

"Pete Schell's Bête Noir is 70% Shiraz from old vine, elevated and lighter textured soils in the Barossa hills blended with 30% Eden Valley Shiraz. The latter inclusion adds smoky black fruits, spice and balancing freshness to this year's version. It's a perfumed, captivating wine with last-man-standing confidence of a truly exciting vintage. The wine was raised in French oak puncheons (30-40% new) with 35% whole bunch fermentation, which has brought a delicious tangy, savoury note to the finish." Winemaker's Note

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Spinifex Bete Noir 2010
"It’s impossible to overstate the sheer class of the 2010 vintage for Barossa reds, and in the right hands it defines a hitherto unexplored plane of new generation Barossa shiraz. Bête takes the black fruit depth of classic Barossa and superimposes it onto a resolutely medium-bodied palate of finely textured, honed tannins and tangy acidity. Black plums, black cherries and violets carry seamlessly through a lively and crunchy palate, accented with fruit mince spice, dark chocolate and black pepper."
