Product Description

Spinifex Luxe Rose

(35% Mataro, 30% Ugni blanc, 26% Shiraz 9% Vermentino) The Luxe rosé first made an appearance in 2009, but wasn't made again until 2014. Pete Schell explains, "Luxe is selected from only those (rosé) parcels that have particular aromatic and textural complexity - we are drawn to sections that display what we call secondary fruit - fresh and dried flowers, herbs, spice, minerality, white and green tea-like aromatics - rather than primary fruit - fresh berry fruits etc." It is, therefore, little surprise that the wine is rich in the savoury Mataro and crafted with almost 40% white wines. Approximately 70% of the blend is matured in wood, a portion of which was new (20%). Further complexity comes from a variety of micro-vinifications that includes portions made via the classic "ex-press" method (where rosé is made in a similar fashion to white wine), saignée and parcels of both partial and complete carbonic maceration. 
Indicative of its old vines, low yields, fruit sorting and the suppleness of large oak fermentation, it's a very textural, engaging, vinous, lip smacking shot of complex flavour and emphatic refreshment. The savoury depth is balanced by the pillowy texture and subtle oak. It's a baby and, as with the last release of this wine, it will certainly benefit from another 6-12 months in bottle. Luxe be a lady tonight.
