THE BRIEF
  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • The distinguished Stonegarden vineyard probably needs little introduction. Originally planted at almost 400 metres above-sea-level, in the 1850s at Springton, this single vineyard is commonly cited by the region's winemakers as one of South Australia's blue-ribbon sites. Once part of an ancient sea bed, the vineyard's thin loam soils sit above a substrate of red clay containing rose quartz and black mica schist fragments. In the heat of summer, cool breezes and low night temperatures promote the long, slow ripening of fruit, resulting in complex flavours with balanced acidity, beautiful aromatics and a subtle minerality.

    Massena's inaugural Stonegarden Riesling, cropped from the vineyard's 1940 plantings, is crafted entirely from free run juices and raised in stainless steel. It's textural, potent and persistent with subtle lime leaf, lemongrass and white blossoms combining with Meyer lemon to give a bright, complex Eden Valley Riesling.

  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Subtle lime leaf, lemongrass and white blossoms combine with lemon sherbet to give a bright and complex aroma. Flavours of Meyer lemon are shared with grapefruit and lemon pith astringency plus a textural element not always associated with Australian Riesling. The natural acidity gives verve and energy, whilst the slate stone minerality leaves you salivating for more.

  • Massena was established in 2000 by Jaysen Collins and Dan Standish. Growing up amongst the old vines of the Barossa inspired a collaboration in making wines of character, balance and a reflection of the sense of enjoyment in the whole winemaking process.
