Spinifex Papillon 2018
Other Reds »
Papillon is our current vintage red wine, bottled towards the end of the year of vintage. Made from old vine Grenache, Cinsualt and Mataro, we select vineyards, pick and vinify all with the aim of creating a wine that is all about freshness, fruit and spice, a wine that is bright and alive.
Bright and brilliant, ruby hued.
Shows the character of the 2009 Barossa vintage clearly; very aromatic and bright, lifted cherry, red currant and spicy raspberry fruit are overlaid with pot-pouri like dried flower, exotic herb and dried wood spice notes – perfumed. With time in the glass reveals subtle warm earthy notes of beetroot, subtle white pepper and caraway like spice.
Distinctly medium weight on the palate with a lovely line of acidity and light, slightly sappy, fresh tannin dryness. Red plum, red currant and cherry flavours on attack with savoury dried spice and dried herbs building towards the end of the palate.
