Originally this wine came from the sixty-year-old Shiraz vines from Greenock that were about to be uprooted. They were saved in the eleventh hour and we used the fruit to make this extraordinary wine. Aromas of black pepper, aniseed and lifted raspberry, roasted coffee and Indian spices. The opulent palate is full of black cherry, raspberry and dark chocolate with typical Barossa black fruits and a rich, supple mouthfeel. Fresh acidity ensures the wine looks bright and fresh if drinking now, without sacrificing the structural components required to reward drinkers for many years to come. - Winery Note
Every one of our wines has a story about our lifetsyle, whether it's a Moonlight Run home after long vintage days or a tannic howl evoked in tasters after they tried our experimental Petite Sirah, the since refined Howling Dog has passion, energy and is an example of what we do best - living in the moment and laughing...a lot!
At Massena, we create individual wines with context, food wines that can be enjoyed with friends. We believe in minimalism and creative expression and our wines express these values. Hands off in the winery with minimal intervention, lower alcohol, less new oak and no herbicides, each wine is an absolute expression of place and people.
The Barossa Valley is an awesome place to live, we see the beauty and potential of this region, planting new varietals such as Saperavi, Primitivo, and Tannat, releasing them exotic, raw and fresh. Massena are true artisans of the Barossa Valley.
