Product Description

The blend this year is 62 per cent Grenache, 24 per cent Mataró, 8 per cent Cinsault, 3 per cent Ugni Blanc and 3 per cent Vermentino. The wine's vintner, Pete Schell, likens the style of the '13 as closer to the rosé wines of the Mediterranean coast and Côte d'Azur rather than inland Provence. So, like Bandol, then? So far, so good. In response to the powerful nature of his red fruit in '13 Pete reduced the proportion of rosé fermented and matured sur lie (in large old oak) from the typical 25 per cent to 15 per cent. Lees stirring was minimised and small proportions of Vermentino and Ugni Blanc utilised in the blend, "all with the goal of retaining freshness yet developing texture and aromatic depth". Pete Schell is one of Australia's most gifted winemakers and his rosé wines are simply brilliant. The '13 is no exception.

Pete's tasting note:
"Discreet white and yellow floral elements, fresh fine herb and just ripe stone fruit aromatics. Delicate pink fruits, spice and citrus flavours. Fresh ripe acids, supple with a fine glossy textural sheen."

Spinifex Rose 2012
"Bright salmon-pink; its scented bouquet is outgunned by the tinkling piano keys of the palate, skipping from one variety to the next and then back again. Roses seldom have fruit-derived mouthfeel, but this one does in spades, and is a bargain by any standards."
94 Points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013
