Spinifex Clairette 2015
A Mediterranean variety that naturally holds acidity and is used to add freshness to the white blends of the Rhone Valley.
The fruit for this is sourced from a southern Barossa Vineyard with limestone based soils. The wine is made using natural acid and indigenous yeasts and is unfiltered. Although this is the first release of this variety as a straight up style, Pete has a long history of using Clairette as a blending component of the much loved Lola.
Nose - subtle perfume of rose petal and quince, green apple and hints of fennel
Palate – Minerality is to the fore here, with subtle savoury notes and a herbal edge of fennel on the palate. This wine is all about texture and length of palate.
