Massena is a new project fashioning seductively rich Barossa wines with lush, layered fruit qualities. 60% of this bottling comes from a parcel of 60-year old Shiraz (saved at 'the eleventh hour' from being uprooted due to pitifully low yields!), and 40% from a 90-year old vineyard. The wine was aged for 18 months in seasoned French oak so as not to in any way detract from the luscious, opulent fruit. Rated a (modest!) "91-93" by America's most admired wine critic.

Winemaker's Notes:

The sixty year old Shiraz vines from Greenock that produced this wine were ready to be uprooted due to the lack of yields and the reluctance of other companies to pay extra for this excellent fruit. After our repeated requests for access to these grapes, at 'the eleventh hour' our growers decided to stop the bulldozer and retain a small area of these vines.
