Peter Schell was winemaker at Turkey Flat from 2001 to 2005, where he familiarized himself with some of the Barossa's more obscure and precious sites. Gaining much inspiration from a succession of vintages in Provence, Peter Schell has assembled Mataro and Shiraz from a tally of old vineyards up to a hundred years of age, planted to propitious pockets of quartz shot clay and silty sand soils on the upper altitudes of Barossa Valley. Deep, complex and masculine, laced with blackberry fruits, brazil nuts, coffee and boudin noir.

Peter Schell was presented with an opportunity to source some great old vine Mataro, growing in deep white drift sand at the Barossa's Western Ridge. As interest and demand for his efforts grew, the decision was made to focus all attention and passion into what had by then become Spinifex. The estate now retain over thirty dedicated Barossa Eden Valley growers with mature vineyards, averaging sixty years, and ranging up to 140 years of age. Each year between forty five and sixty different parcels of fruit from these growers are vinified. The restrained complexity of old vineyards and generosity of ancient soils.
Deep red/ scarlet. Aromatic, sweet and savoury aromas of tarragon, stewed red plums, undergrowth, fennel seed, rhubarb, tamarillo and dates, also some subtle meaty undertones. Dark, savoury and saline elements find balance against fleshy, elemental fruit, red and black berries, stony acids and fine sandy tannins build to drive the finish, fresh and firm.
