More Information

When Spinifex first made the scene, so to speak, in 2001, this was one of the wines that made a big impact. Built on perfume, finesse and savoury structure, as it was then, the make up of Esprit changes year-on-year, while seldom sacrificing its 'Barossa Burgundy' tag. There's no Shiraz this year and little Mataro (which contributed 40% last year). Instead, 74% Grenache, 21% Cinsault and Mataro 5%, the Cinsault contributing to the pretty red-fruited perfumes and the crisp, mouthwatering tannins.

As always, the wine was sourced from a selection of very old vineyards on the northern (Ebenezer), western (Moppa) and eastern (Angaston Foothills) edges of the Barossa, as well as from Springton in Eden Valley. Vine age ranges from 75 to over 150 years, and all sites are dry grown with minimal vineyard inputs--old vineyards grown the old way. 


Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
