2020 Spinifex 'Miette' Rose, Barossa Valley SA
The Miette is crafted entirely from Pinot Noir. It's sourced from a single vineyard on red clay over limestone in the southern Barossa foothills--just down the road from the famed Steingarten vineyard. It's cropped from a tiny parcel of Pinot immediately adjacent to a small bush-vine Mataro vineyard that Pete Schell has been making cracking rosé from for the last six years or so. Pete notes that he's been in the habit of sneaking across and tasting the Pinot Noir fruit whenever he's been up there checking on the Mataro, and, ever curious, in early 2020 he asked grower Ronnie to hand pick a couple of tonnes for him.
