Massena is all about making wine from great vineyards, with minimal intervention in the winery. Hand harvesting allows some whole bunch inclusion and the vineyard’s indigenous yeast is used in all ferments. The red wines are made quite traditionally, with open top fermentation, gentle extraction and basket pressing followed by ageing on lees in new and seasoned French oak barrels. Extended time on skins post ferment is used to build tannin structure and a savoury profile. Massena wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered and have minimal sulphur added.

Select vineyards from McLaren Vale with average vine age of 30 years.
A gentle ferment on skins for 10 days followed by 12 months maturation in French and American Oak

Winery description
"Style : Freshly sliced panforte – date, fig, with and fresh cherry with rhubarb fruits that become more apparent with time in the glass. This dense wine spills across the palate with balanced, fine polished tannins. The wine has intense dark berried fruits, with support fresh boysenberry, loganberry, and blackberry notes."

Best match with roast beef with horseradish sauce.
