The Rusden Vineyard is nestled on the deep Vine Vale sand in the foothills below the eastern Barossa Ranges. The early pioneers carved this area out of cypress, blue gum and wattle woodland, once known as Bethany Sandscrub. The old vines are traditionally cared for and hand tended to ensure their longevity and benefit for future generations. A minimalist approach to winemaking results in an honest representation of the variety. This is a New World wine made in an Old World style to produce a fruit driven wine with dimension, character and balance.
Intriguing nose from a cooler vintage, some violet, spice and cherry cola. The palate shows refined characters of coffee bean, liquorice, spice and underlying dark fruits. Well integrated oak with muscular tannins and firm grip. Classic Vine Vale Shiraz.
PLEASE NOTE: We also list the 750ml bottle of this wine, although vintage is typically more recent.
