Massena 'Fruit Salad Block' Field Blend 2017
Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $28.00
As Campbell Mattinson and Mike Bennie have said in separate reviews… ‘What a ripper’. From the famous Stonegarden vineyard in the Eden Valley. This white is made from seriously old vines and perhaps as many as 20 different varieties including Riesling, Muscat, Verdelho, Grenache and Mataro. There’s minerality, chalkiness, stone fruits, spices and all manner of other deliciousness going on. Indeed, this is a ripper.

In a scene that today seems almost as bizarre as Donald Trump becoming POTUS, a patch of 60 year old Shiraz vines in the North-Western Greenock district of the Barossa was close to being bulldozed. With a lot of love for the Barossa’s old vines and perhaps a dash of foresight, mates Dan and Jaysen lobbied the grower to sell the fruit to them instead, and the “Eleventh Hour” Shiraz was born. It’s racked up plenty of accolades over the last decade or so. Massena also produce rippingly good wines from Riesling, Viognier, Mataro, Saperavi, Tannat, Durif, Barbera and Primitivo.
