Place: Barossa Valley, SA
Peter Schell and Magali Galy have carved out quite a reputation for themselves. After long sojourns in the south of France, they developed an affection for the Rhône Valley and the grapes native to it.
Miette is the French word for crumbs, and while this label started its life crafted from the (delicious) off-cuts that fell from Spinifex's top table, today the picture is somewhat different. The wine is made from fruit sourced specifically for this cuvee, the core of which came from six key vineyards in Ebenezer, Bethany, Tanunda and Moppa--serious Barossa terroirs that have delivered bold, honest and deep Shiraz flavours and structure. Winemaker Pete Schell has also blended in some wines from the higher country of the Barossa Ranges and Eden Valley to bring freshness.
