Massena Dadds Block Rose 2017

Massena Dadds Block Rose 2017 (70% Primitivo, 30% Mataro) ‘Our Primitivo and Mataro are hand harvested and pressed as whole clusters to extract only the freshest juice. Transferred into neutral oak barrels, the juice is left to spontaneously ferment over several weeks. The natural convection currents during ferment ensure the lees are rolled continuously through the wine, giving texture and weight to the palate.’

Established in 2000 Massena was begun by Dan Standish and Jaysen Collins who until 2006 were employed full time at other Barossa wineries (Dan as winemaker at Torbreck and Jaysen as general manager at Turket Flat). All Massena wines are from 100% Eden Valley and Barossa valley fruit from dry-farmed, low yielding vines up to 155 years age located in the north-western Barossa. Working mostly with traditional Barossa varieties, they have also established experimental vineyards of other varieties like Roussanne, Viognier, Barbera, Primitivo, Dolcetto, Tinta Amarela, Graciano, Saperavi and Tannat.

Wines are made using traditional techniques such as open fermentation and basket pressing and are aged in tank or seasoned French oak; no American oak is used here for maturation. All varieties are hand harvested and fermented using indigenous yeasts and wines from each vineyard are raised and kept separate until final blending. These are wines of striking purity and natural intensity that reflect their origins and which offer outstanding value.
