Massena Shiraz Barossa Valley Epsilon 2004
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.
A smooth, rich shiraz.
External Reviews for Massena Shiraz Barossa Valley Epsilon
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.
The 2004 Shiraz 11th Hour is a blend of fruit from a 60-year-old Greenock vineyard (60%) and a 90-year-old vineyard in Nuriootpa (40%). It was aged 18 months in used French oak. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of peppery black curra... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2004 Massena Shiraz The Eleventh Hour 750ml
