Located in Vine Vale on the Barossa Valley floor, the deep white sand over red clay provides what Rusden believe is the most versatile and consistent grape growing district in the region.
Rusden is a “vigneron” in the true sense of the word; growing the grapes, making and bottling the wine and selling the wine ourselves to our many and varied restaurant friends and loyal mail order customers.
The wines have a unique character with balance and structure; they are fruit driven to reflect the unique flavours in the wines of the particular site. The Rusden range of wines have an obvious house style because they are all made and grown the same way in the same soil, whilst almost being an honest representative of each vintage.
Very aromatic with loads of rich ‘fruit n spice’. Perfume, hints of florals from the Grenache. The palate is medium-bodied with raspberry, apricot & some dark berry fruit, the sweetness is well balanced by the spice. Lovely finish with gentle tannin and good length. A classic GSM style fit for any table. - Rusden Wines
- Delicious Review by James N
- One of our favourites in our household, plenty of flavour without being overdone on the oak or overly jammy. Approachable when young and great year round drinking. (Posted on 9/23/2019)
