Rusden 'Black Guts' Shiraz 2018 (Barossa Valley, South Australia) "...dark fruits, tar, violets..."
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 know 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.
"Dense nose of dark fruits, tar, violets and spice. The palate is powerful but refined and speaks of black cherries, liquorice, dark chocolate and spice. Integrated French oak provides some grip, one of the best vintages for some time." - Winery Notes
