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.

Expert Reviews

Coming from 45 and 65 year old Shiraz vines, 2007 Black Guts Shiraz has intense notes of warm blackberry, anise, kirsch and black olives over nuances of green peppercorns, underbrush and cardamom. Full bodied but not to the extreme, the palate is rich and well fleshed with a solid backbone of very crisp acid and a medium level of very fine tannins. This is quite an elegant style with great balance and persistence. Approachable now, it should cellar to 2020+. - The Wine Advocate

Winery Tasting Notes

Intriguing nose from a cooler vintage, some violet, spice and cherry cola. The palate shows refined characters of coffee bean, liquorice, spice and underlying dark fruits. Well integrated oak with muscular tannins and firm grip. Classic Vine Vale Shiraz.

Winery Profile

We believe that we are custodians of the land. Our job is to care for it as best we can and pass it down from one generation to the next. We also pass down the traditions that were taught to us by our forebears. We tend the vineyard by hand, and more recently as our winery has grown, we adhere to traditional methods in the cellar. Our focus is on traditional Barossa varieties and blends, however we are not afraid to give different varieties a go as Australia’s wine industry is still in its infancy. We are caretakers of the land, shepherding our vines through the seasons and the wine they produce through our cellar.

Our vineyard is in Vine Vale; our terroir is deep white sand over red clay. We believe that Vine Vale is the most versatile and consistent grape growing district on the Barossa Valley floor.

Our wines have a unique character with balance and structure. They are fruit driven because we believe in our vineyard and we want you to taste the unique flavours in the wines of this particular site. Our range of wines has an obvious house style because they are all made and grown the same way in the same soil. Our wines honestly represent vintage. Rusden is a “vigneron” in the true sense of the word. We grow the grapes, make and bottle the wine and sell the wine ourselves to our many and varied restaurant friends and loyal mail order customers all over Australia.

We are deeply humbled by the support and passion we are so blessed to receive from the many people who love drinking Rusden wine.
