About The Wine

This wine comes from one of the most famous vineyards in the South Australia, the famed Stonegarden Vineyard in the Eden Valley.

These vines were planted in the 1940s and have been some of the most sought-after fruit in the region ever since.

In the hands of Jaysen Collins, this Riesling fruit is electric.

A near perfect vintage in 2017 has yielded an über-refreshing Riesling that received 95 points in the Wine Companion.

About Massena

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, focusing on old vines in great vineyards and the range has gone from strength to strength.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"1940s vines. Textural, powerful, persistent. Lime juice and crystals, talc and spice, mineral. A hint of orange blossom. A trace of fruit sweetness. It's pretty and it's purposeful, and it feels soft as it extends along your tongue. A treat of a wine." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

94Points
The Wine Front

"A delightful wine. Textural, laden with flavour, long through the finish and delicious every step of the way. It packs a real flavour punch but it steps lightly; it feels soft. Sweet lime, talc, rose petals, orange blossoms. Quite an exotic thing, it is. It will age but it’s a ripper drink right now." - Campbell Mattinson (the Wine Front)
