94 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2006 Eleventh Hour Shiraz was sourced from 60- to 125-year-old vines that were saved from the bulldozer at the eleventh hour. The wine was aged for 20 months in seasoned French oak hogsheads (300-liter barrels compared to 225 liters for a standard barrique). It exhibits an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, charcoal, mineral, black raspberry, and wild blueberry. Liqueur-like on the palate, it has layers of savor fruit, incipient complexity, and impeccable balance. Light on its feet, this gorgeous effort will be in its prime from 2012 to 2024." 94 Points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"Made by Dan Standish, this resembles the wines under his own label in its sense of elegance and proportion. Itâs big, but not too big, with intriguing aromas of smoke, blueberries and pepper, followed up by flavors of blueberry, cherry and spice. Drink now-2020." 93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Saturated red. Compelling bouquet of blueberry, cherry compote, violet and Asian spices. Sappy dark berry flavors are velvety and round, with peppery spice adding nerve. Gains sweetness and power with air, finishing with outstanding clarity and thrust. Deeply flavored but not heavy, this deftly combines richness with energy." 92 Points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"The sixty year old Shiraz vines from Greenock that produced this wine were ready to be uprooted due to the lack of yields and the reluctance of other companies to pay extra for this excellent fruit. After our repeated requests for access to these grapes, at 'the eleventh hour' our growers decided to stop the bulldozer and retain a small area of these vines." -Winemaker
"Massena was an idea shared between Dan Standish when he was at Torbreck, and Jaysen Collins while he was at Turkey flat. During the harvest in 1999 they would make the moon lit drive home from the Valley together and talk about the wine they would drink to wash down a long days work. Well it seems that that wine would be of the Rhone family and made from only the best in dry-grown and low yielding grapes in the Barossa Valley."
"What they did was begin purchasing top fruit from small family growers in the Valley that tend to 140+ year-old Shiraz, 120+ year-old Grenache and 45+ year-old Cinsault for their âThe Moonlight Runâ and âThe Eleventh Hourâ. The quality of the raw material shaped the direction of the winery as they bring a clean, un-intrusive technique to this project."
"Gently basket pressed, open fermented and aged in seasoned oak to show true varietal characteristics while paying homage to the region behind their inspiration. The most recent additions have been âThe Howling Dogâ which sources 3 younger Petite Syrah vineyards in Nuriootpa and âThe Surly Museâ which is a blend of Ebenezer and Adelaide Hills Viognier.
