Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

Their winemaking philosophy is largely influenced by Gely’s South-Western French roots and the duo’s extensive experience working vintages across France. Spinifex has a strong focus on blends produced from varieties such as Mourvèdre (Mataro) in addition to Mediterranean varieties well suited to the Barossa Valley including Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache Gris and Marsanne. Grapes for the range of wines are sourced from a number of growers in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Spinifex is also a member of the Artisans of the Barossa, a group that focuses on environmental sustainability and traditions of the region.
