“This is the kind of wine only a handful of South Australian vineyards can consistently achieve. There is virtually nothing like it produced anywhere else in the world.”
Robert M Parker Jr., Wine Advocate

“Another rare and courageous Mataro bottling. Though the Rusden boys have been called many things, gutless ain’t one of them.”
Nick Stock, Adelaide Review

“Rusden is not really mainstream, but it has an interested cult-type following. Further, it possesses all the ingredients for long term success.”
Andrew Caillard MW, Langtons

“Christian Canute is one of those guys who gets it- and he gets it very well at a young age. He is a young man who brings a Burgundian sense of balance to an area that is too often over-the-top.”
Charles M Bear Dalton, Spec’s Liquor

“I get a bag of bread ends and a bottle of Rusden Black Guts, then scream at tourists until the police tasered me.”
Patton Oswalt, actor (Ratatouille) and stand-up comic
