Spinifex Idigene 2009 “bold and seductive” and 94 points!

Spinifex Idigene 2009 continues to collect raves from the wine critics… Here’s what the Wine Front had to say…”Back to its Shiraz Mataro duel in 2009, Indigene is a yardstick wine for Spinifex; its shape and flavours pave a very original path. I’ve liked this wine over the years, it tends to do great justice to the varieties and the ‘classic’ blend from the Barossa.   Bold, seductive aromas that run from Indian spice to red berries to briar and back to herbs. It’s complex and heady, yet inviting, with plumes of scent evoking the character of the wine from afar. One of those you can whiff from the table. The palate is firm yet layered, with a textural feel that moves in an ovoid fashion – it opens with blueberry and mulberry, plumes into a soft yet dense pouch of fruit and spice, then finishes lithe and earthy, yet lingers with a very fine trail of sweet raspberry. The tickle of sweetness so very pretty. More right hook then left jab. Bring tha Mataro; a great wine.”   Mike Bennie
