Spinifex Lola 2017
In 2017 the growing season rolled out softly and evenly – no heat waves, no untimely rain, bush fires or locust plagues……. and delivered wines with bright fruit, freshness and pleasing natural balance.
Blended from old vine Semillon (58%), Vermentino (25%) and Clairette (17%) parcels all hand harvested from four different vineyards in the Barossa Valley, with varying soil types ranging from ironstone shot red clay and deep alluvial loams to classic red clay over limestone terra rossa.
Chilled fruit was macerated for up to 2 days prior to fermentation in a combination of old French oak barriques, puncheons and stainless steel. Bottled without filtration after 8 months on full lees.
