Hero Notes:

Husband-and-wife team Pete Schell and Magali Gely craft wines from old vine Mataro grown in the drift sands of Barossa’s Western Ridge, along with Shiraz, Carignan, Cinsault and Grenache produced from a patchwork of  ’gardens’ across the valley. The result is a range of wines with local, regional accent and character. The Spinifex Papillon is a great illustration of how difficult vintages – 2011 – in the correct and caring hands, can still produce a wine of interest, flavour and enjoyment.
