Spinifex 'Old Vine' Mataro 2012

Not to be confused with the Old Vine Moculta Single Vineyard releases from the same year, this wine was sourced from a selection of 90 year old Barossa Mataro rooted in the Lights Pass sub-region between Angaston and Nuriootpa. Fermented naturally, the wine spent a total of three weeks on skins before 16 months in old French oak, and then a stretch in stainless steel to freshen the wine up.

"Hard to believe this vintage is still available. Sinewy, some tang, saline and olives. Soft but focused acid. Drinking younger than its 11yrs but not sure this needs keeping. Somewhat better than the 2010 Mataro from Soul Growers consumed a few months back." Stewart @ Slowbeer
