‘Pete and his partner Magali Gely operate what I think is the best new wave of small scale Barossa wine companies to emerge at the beginning of the 21st century These weren ™t big. blockbuster. showy wines designed to impress. They were wines that managed to take the best of the Barossa ™s sometimes forgotten varietal traditions and fuse them onto a very European flavour sensibility. ‘ Max Allen. The future makers
‘It seems that Spinifex wines can do no wrong. ‘ Campbell Mattinson. The Wine Front.
An exotic blend of Espana 55% Tempranillo. 17% Carignan. 14% Cabernet and 14% Graciano. Sweet aromatics followed by complex. layered palate with dark cherries. stewed plums and savoury. almost beefy flavours. Beautiful structure and a long. refreshing finish. Drinking well now or cellar for 5 years. Winemaker Pete Schell says he wanted to make a wine that was “ big. gutsy and upfront… hence Taureau “ The Bull was born!
94 Points James Halliday “…the colour is bright purple red. with the bright red cherry fruit of the tempranillo occupying first place on the starting grid. but also stretching its zesty influence all the way through to the finish and aftertaste. This is Spain. not the south of France. speaking. ”
94 Points. Nick Stock. 2013 Good Wine Guide “Another very convincing Taureau. led again by tempranillo (45%). with cabernet (28%). graciano (22%) and carignan (5%) all seamlessly stitched together. It ‘s a wine that smells first of all like the Barossa. painted in tempranillo ‘s cherry red hues. some tar. cassis. liquorice and violets. The palate ‘s smoothly coated in ripe tannins and delivers ample but elegant structure to carry darker blue and purple berry flavour. some plum too. Finishes satisfyingly smooth and supple. Sensational value! ”
