Wine Reviews by Nick Stock


Spinifex Indigene - 95 points

The modern face of the Barossa Valley has been honed by many facets of bright minds backed by the spoils of long-established vineyards planted to the right varieties. The Spinifex contribution harks close to the sweet spot, the wines are soulful and sturdy, harking close to the essence of what makes this region tick. Dense dark berries, the regional black fruits of shiraz dressed here with the more exotic notes of mataro: pepper, earth, aromatic dried herbs and sanguine richness. It opens with air to more meat and spice and oozes style and finesse. The palate is deep, powerful and profound, this is a triumph, flavour woven across seamless tannin, superb balance and intensity, liquourice and dark berry flavour, dried plums and spice all thunder through in unison. Cellar.
