Product Description

Indigene is based on the Barossa's wonderful resource of old-vine Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre). This year's blend was sourced exclusively from some of Spinifex’s oldest, dry-grown Shiraz (63%) and Mataro (37%) vineyards located in Ebenezer, Moppa and High Eden. The fruit was hand-harvested, cooled overnight and naturally fermented with 30% whole bunches. Fermentation took place in small steel and wood fermenters for between 10 and 20 days, then the wine was pressed into a selection of barriques and demi-muids (20% new) for 20 months prior to bottling (unfined and without filtration).

This has always been Pete Schell’s ode to old-vine Barossa but with his own twist. 2018 is certainly one of his very greatest releases of the Indigene—fans of previous vintages should not miss it! You can expect a juicy, vibrant and racy-fresh wine (a theme of 2018) with plenty of deep, dark cherry and ripe blackberry fruit, loads of mixed spice and perfectly integrated spicy oak. There’s also some subtle whole-bunch freshness and fine, powdery tannins. Time in the glass brings brighter and brighter fruit and even more perfume.
