Tasting Notes

La Solana-a non-vintage, barrel matured white blend maintained in a modified solera system. Started in 2005 and comprised in most years of small portions of white wine parcels that are also components of Spinifex's Lola in that given vintage, the grapes are retained and matured sur lie in old barriques. The barrels are stored outside in the elements and hence the name Solana, meaning "under the sun". The composition of La Solana mirrors that of Lola over the years, being based on Barossa and Eden Valley Ugni blanc, Semillon, Vermentino, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The average age of wines in this first bottling is estimated at 4 years. This idiosyncratic wine's complex and evolving aromatics include dried pear, preserved lemon, persimmon, almond meal, Brazil nut, nutmeg and faint brassy notes. Delicate flor-derived 'proving dough' notes add to a complex aroma spread of both fresh and evolved elements. It's concentrated and persistent on the palate - the mark of extended barrel maturation - with grapefruit, lemon, loquat, and marzipan flavours and a glossy up front feel, drawn to a drying nutty finish by a building presence of stony fruit acids. - Distributor Note

Peter Schell and Magali Gely have had a home in the Barossa Valley for over twenty years and hold a strong commitment to and passion for the Barossa. They also have a strong French connection, both physically and philosophically. Magali's family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south west France, and over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy. Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance.Grapes are sourced from a group of dedicated growers in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, taking advantage of the great diversity of the soils and meso-climates of the Barossa to create wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.
