Spinifex 'La Cigale' 2021
37% Mataro, 31% Cinsault, 20% Grenache & 12% Shiraz.
This blows away most Australian renditions of Southern Rhone blends. The Mataro and Grenache bring a lovely blue fruited nose, with pockets of potpourri and spice. On the palate the wine shines, with ample fruit sweetness and more of those savoury characters lending balance. But what makes it for me is the freshness and crunch Cinsault provides, pushing the wine to cracking everyday medium bodied bottle. Jeremy Muller, FWC.
