Established in 2000 Massena is owned 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 Turkey Flat). All Massena wines are from 100% Barossa valley fruit from dry-farmed, low yielding vines up to 155 years age located in the north-western Barossa. The Moonlight Run takes its name from Dan and Jaysen’s midnight drive back to the Barossa after working vintage in the Clare Valley. Inspired by the wines of Chateauneuf du Pape it is aged in both tank and barrel.
A compelling Southern Rhone style blend that’s absolutely delicious.
A blend of 49% Mataro, 28% Grenache and 23% Shiraz. Very deep black dark red colour with a dark red black tinged hue. Jumping out of the glass are black raspberry, liquorice and plum scents with hints of blueberry, scorched earth, light dried herbs and spice also evident. Showcasing all the attributes of the great 2018 Barossa vintage, powerful black raspberry, dark cherry, liquorice and dark plum fruits cascade across the palate with terrific intensity. Sitting underneath are complexing blueberry, light scorched earth, provincial herb infusions and spicy pepper nuances. The plush mouthfeel is counterpointed by ripe, slightly chewy tannins which impart underlying sturdiness. Concludes long, sumptuous and quite moreish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
