RUSDEN SANDSCRUB 2006
2006 was a long time ago. From a cooler year, it produced wines that were very tight, almost crisp, but brooding classics. From Barossa Shiraz I thought ours was very restrained, but with huge aging potential. The 2006 Sandscrub is a baby. The power is there, but restraint is evident in its unlikely elegance. I think it’s a wine for the ages. It’s got the balance of the 2002, with the seductive beauty of the 2003, and it’s poised to go another mile or two yet. If you can’t wait, and have to open one straight away, I’d recommend you open it in the morning and drink it that night.
