Winemaker Notes

This Shiraz is crafted from 60-year old vines in Greenock sub district of the Barossa Valley. The old vines were to be uprooted by the growers due to the lack of yields and the fact that other companies were reluctant to pay for those excellent, yet low yielding vines. After repeated requests by Jaysen and Dan, the vineyard was 'saved' at the eleventh hour resulting in this excellent wine as well as the very appropriate name.

"It exhibits an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, charcoal, mineral, black raspberry, and wild blueberry. Liqueur-like on the palate, it has layers of savory fruit, incipient complexity, and impeccable balance. Light on its feet, this gorgeous effort will be in its prime from 2012 to 2024." 94 Points

Made by Dan Standish, this resembles the wines under his own label in its sense of elegance and proportion. It’s big, but not too big, with intriguing aromas of smoke, blueberries and pepper, followed up by flavors of blueberry, cherry and spice. Drink now–2020.

Massena Winery Image
Massena, a winemaking partnership between Dan Standish and Jaysen Collins, has been producing Barossa wine since the 2000 vintage, concentrating on the traditional values and techniques which have made the wines of this region unique.

We have dedicated growers in the North Western Barossa areas of Greenock, Kalimna and Koonunga Hill, providing fruit from dry farmed, low yielding vines up to 120 years of age. While we work mostly with traditional Barossa varieties Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro from these growers, we are also trialling new varieties such as Durif, Barbera, Dolcetto, Roussanne, Saperavi and Tannat.

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds. While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
