Massena 'The Howling Dog' Saperavi 2015

A massive brooding beast studded with contrastingly bright fruit. Cherries, blackberries, blackstrap, tar, iodine and smokiness. A Scotch lovers red. A red lovers red. Complex, with bags of personality… yum!

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

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.
