About The Wine
This wine was first conceived back in 1999 whilst driving between the Barossa and Clare in the dead of night during the gruelling time of year that is vintage - it's become a staple of the Massena range ever since.
Jaysen Collins knows Barossa wines as well as any in the biz, and this, his Rhone inspired blend of Mataro, Grenache, Shiraz and Cinsault, is a prime example of his skills.
The 2016 was rated 95 points from James Halliday. These Rhone Valley inspired blends are kicking huge goals in the Barossa at the moment, and this is pitch perfect in terms of style.
Part of the elite group of wineries in the ‘Artisans of the Barossa’ cellar door, Jaysen Collins’ label Massena is a force to be reckoned with.
After leaving his job at industry big dog Turkey Flat Jaysen started Massena in 2000 along with Dan Standish to produce wines that are in their own words “true to the Barossa style, being rich, warm and generous.”
Jaysen now makes all the wines himself and the range has gone from strength to strength.
