Massena Verto Shiraz 2017

Special Price $80.00 Regular Price $85.00
A rich and intense Shiraz sourced from old vines in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. Whole berries were fermented and gently basket pressed into a combination of ceramic eggs and old and new French oak. The end result is a full-bodied wine offering plum, five spice, black fruits, coffee, chocolate, and velvety tannins. Stunning!

It’s racked up plenty of accolades over the last decade or so. Massena also produces rippingly good wines from Riesling, Viognier, Mataro, Saperavi, Tan-nat, Durif, Barbera and Primitivo ...
