About This Wine

Indigene is based on Barossa’s wonderful resource of old-vine Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre). This year’s blend was sourced exclusively from some of Spinifex’s oldest, dry-grown Shiraz (52%) and Mataro (48%) vineyards located in Ebenezer, Moppa and an elevated site in Eastern Barossa. The fruit was hand-harvested, cooled overnight and destemmed before naturally fermenting. For the Shiraz component, 30% whole bunches were retained. Natural fermentation took place in small steel and wood fermenters for between 10 and 24 days, then the wine was pressed into a selection of puncheons and demi-muids (40% new) for 20 months prior to bottling—unfined and without filtration.

Barossa Valley Wine

The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.

A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.

Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
