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. Our 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.
Wow, this is hallmark Vine Vale Shiraz. Dense nose of violets, dark fruits, some graphite and mocha. Powerful, yet elegant, the palate is awash with dark cherry, mulberry, chocolate and spice. Beautifully poised to age for a decade or two, this vintage is set to be a classic!
