Plums and espresso add a long finish to a well-structured body.
Very full-bodied with a generous amount of layered warm black fruit and savory flavors, it is well structured with a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins and lively acid. Rusden is one of the success stories of the new Barossa. Dennis and Christine Canute purchased 40 acres of a rather run-down vineyard back in 1979. Dennis carried on his day job as a teacher to give Christine, who was a fifth-generation grape grower, the opportunity and funds to begin the work of rejuvenating the vines.
