Expert Reviews

97 Points - Jay S Miller, Published 25 February, 2009

The flagship wine is the 2005 Black Guts Shiraz, sourced from estate Shiraz vines yielding a meager 1 to 1.5 tons of fruit per acre. It was aged for 30 months in 35% new French and American oak and 65% in old French barriques. Saturated purple in color, it offers up its characteristic sexy, kinky, exotic bouquet of smoke, wild blueberry, meat, game, mineral, and bacon. Layered, succulent, and exceptionally long, this already complex Shiraz will evolve for several years with a prime drinking window from 2012 to 2025.

Rusden is where the gifted Christian Canute makes wine on the family property in Barossa. He has a unique ability to produce wines of great finesse combined with the intensity and power obtained from the best Barossa Valley fruit.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Our vineyard is situated on the deep Vine Vale sand below the eastern Barossa Ranges. The early pioneers carved this area out of cypress, blue gum and wattle woodland, once known as Bethany Sandscrub.

Here low yielding vines are pruned and picked by hand. Fermentation of fruit at optimal ripeness in small, open fermenters is followed by gentle basket pressing.

Careful maturation in new and old American and French oak barriques produces fruit driven wines with intense and complex flavours.

Winery Profile

We believe that we are custodians of the land. Our job is to care for it as best we can and pass it down from one generation to the next. We also pass down the traditions that were taught to us by our forebears. We tend the vineyard by hand, and more recently as our winery has grown, we adhere to traditional methods in the cellar. Our focus is on traditional Barossa varieties and blends, however we are not afraid to give different varieties a go as Australia’s wine industry is still in its infancy. We are caretakers of the land, shepherding our vines through the seasons and the wine they produce through our cellar.

Our vineyard is in Vine Vale; our terroir is deep white sand over red clay. We believe that Vine Vale is the most versatile and consistent grape growing district on the Barossa Valley floor.

Our wines have a unique character with balance and structure. They are fruit driven because we believe in our vineyard and we want you to taste the unique flavours in the wines of this particular site. Our range of wines has an obvious house style because they are all made and grown the same way in the same soil. Our wines honestly represent vintage. Rusden is a “vigneron” in the true sense of the word. We grow the grapes, make and bottle the wine and sell the wine ourselves to our many and varied restaurant friends and loyal mail order customers all over Australia.

We are deeply humbled by the support and passion we are so blessed to receive from the many people who love drinking Rusden wine.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
