2002 Rusden Black Guts Shiraz.  96Pts Robert Parker Jnr – The Rusden Vineyard is nestled on the deep Vine Vale sand in the foothills below the eastern Barossa Ranges. The early pioneers carved this area out of cypress, blue gum and wattle woodland, once know as Bethany Sandscrub. Our old vines are traditionally cared for and hand tended to ensure their longevity and benefit for future generations. A minimalist approach to winemaking results in an honest representation of the variety. This is a New World wine made in an Old World style to produce a fruit driven wine with dimension, character and balance.

 

“This is the kind of wine only a handful of South Australian vineyards can consistently achieve. There is virtually nothing like it produced anywhere else in the world.”  Robert M Parker Jr., Wine Advocate.

 

“Another rare and courageous Mataro bottling. Though the Rusden boys have been called many things, gutless ain’t one of them.” Nick Stock, Adelaide Review.

 

Robert Parker 96 points! “A fabulous offering is the 2002 Shiraz Black Guts. Made from 36-year-old vines cropped at 1-2 tons of fruit per acre, it boasts an inky/purple color followed by a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, cold steel, acacia flowers, and subtle new oak. Layers of fruit and purity cascade over the palate of this long, rich, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, impeccably balanced Shiraz. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020+.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #161 (Oct 2005).
