The Rusden Black Guts Shiraz melds together the structure of the 2012 and the density and concentration of the 2013. I thought it was an exceptional vintage for Shiraz, with low yields and a perfect growing season.

The Rusden Black Guts Shiraz melds together the structure of the 2012 and the density and concentration of the 2013. I thought it was an exceptional vintage for Shiraz, with low yields and a perfect growing season.

The two blocks on our vineyard that produce the fruit for the Black Guts have both been through gradual rejuvenation over a period of 20 or more years. Nurturing an 80 year old and 50 year old vineyard back to consistent quality production has been a real joy (and a lot of hard work).

When I look at the last few vintages and see the consistency and concentration in the wines, I think that everyone involved in the vineyard, in our garden, should be very proud. It’s a beautifully balanced Shiraz that drinks so well off the bat, but will mostly reward those that are prepared to cellar it for ten or more years.

​“From Vine Vale in the Barossa Valley, this is shiraz of generosity, weight and heart. Black Guts is such an evocative name too. The 2014 vintage has done well for this wine. More modest, a bit fresher, sleeker in a way, though with the V8 engine on full, it’s running at a purr. It’s strong in its black currant, raisin, liquorice and milk chocolate scents. To taste, smooth and palate staining, rich, plump, lavish in dark fruits, clove-cinnamon spice, creamy choc-berry ice cream suggestion, and yet feels vibrant as it slides on its long journey through the mouth. Lush.”
Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, May 2017
