The Spinner is a blend of 2 vintages; barriques were selected based on their unique characters and individuality, after extended barrel maturation. The 2010 selection displayed natural fine acidity with savoury and mineral notes. This complemented the 2011 selection which offered flavours of white peach and melon.
Being non vintage may seem unconventional way to go, however this allowed us to utilise two very natural wines, creating something more interesting, with greater depth and balance via the “assemblage”. Very much a case of a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts.
The Spinner will continue to age gracefully and develop greater complexity and richness for the next 2-4 years.
