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.
The great ‘All-rounder’… spicy, savoury, generous fruit. On the nose there’s loads of rich fruit characters and the gentle spice gives the wine a savoury edge. The palate is medium-bodied with sour cherry, apricot & some dark berry fruit. Ultra slurpable, a classic GSM style fit for any table. Lovely finish with gentle tannin and good length.
