A special white blend from a boutique producer in Barossa. The Lola demonstrates a Southern French ethos of blending, in which a range of grapes contribute various kinds of enhancement to an elegant, textural food white. With a charming combination of treasured old vines, obscure varietals and ingeniously textural winemaking (with some maceration on skins), this is a unique and delicious Barossa white at any price. Indefinable X factor -- a must-try!

Its Origins

Spinifex is one of the undercover jewels of the Barossa Valley. New Zealand husband and wife team Peter Schell & Magali Gely have extensive experience in southern France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals. Spinifex was on the front line of the new wave of Barossa producers. Peter’s wines brought a new sensibility to the region, they were lower in alcohol, concentrated but elegant, and balanced to perfection. He takes the art of blending into the realm of the virtuoso. There are few wineries who deliver refinement and poise from the Barossa Valley like Spinifex. The focus at Spinifex is the red varieties that dominate in the south of France: mataro (more correctly mourvedre), grenache, shiraz and cinsaut. The wines are made in open fermenters, basket-pressed, with partial wild (indigenous) fermentation and relatively long post-ferment maceration.
