spinifex wines winery of the year and wine of the year 2009

Spinifex Wines from the Barossa Valley continue to receive amazing press for their wines.   Last year they received the honour of being named by the influential Penguin Wine Guide as Winery of the Year and Wine of the Year for their Esprit 2006.    Writer Nick Stock had this to say: “I like this wine. A lot. In fact, of the 6000-odd wines I tasted for the Penguin Wine Guide this year, I awarded this the Wine of the Year. I also awarded Spinifex Winery of the Year in the same book. Earlier in the year I crowned the couple behind the project, Pete Schell and Magali Gely, with the 2008 Young Gun of Wine Award. Then, just recently in the Adelaide Review Hot 100, line honours and Wine of the Year went to another of their wines, the 2006 Indigene. I’m not going to describe the 2006 Esprit; it’s a genius blended red with more style, personality and soul than 100 others all put together. Buy it while you can! 96 points
