All Result  massena (2)


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 Turket Flat. They are now ably assisted in winemaking by Fraser McKinley who has worked several vintages with Helen Turley in California.

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. Working mostly with traditional Barossa varieties, they have also established experimental vineyards of other varieties like Roussanne, Viognier, Barbera, Primitivo and Tannat.

These are wines of striking purity and natural intensity that reflect their origins. Winemaking is non-interventional and only French oak is used for elevage, NO American oak is used here for maturation. All varieties are hand harvested and wines from each vineyard are raised and kept separate until final blending.
