Rusty Mutt is the work of winemaker Scott Heidrich who began by producing and selling a single barrel, using the money raised to make the next batch, and so on... Today the wines have received much praise and many awards, but stay true to Scott's philosophy of producing small batch handmade wines to enjoy on release and beyond. Scott has a keen interest in Chinese Astrology - leading to the interesting Rusty Mutt name - as he himself is a 'metal dog'! The winery is a proud member of the 'Vale Cru', a collective of small batch winemakers from McLaren Vale producing high-quality boutique wines.

 

This is a wonderfully expressive Viognier, which has a lovely texture and mouthfeel without being heavy and oily which Viognier can be prone to without keen attention in the winery. This is fresh and crisp, and full of bright peach, apricot and citrus fruit, with some spice and herbal notes. The finish is zesty, dry and long. The perfect summer refresher!

 

“An inviting aroma showing orange peel, fresh lime zest and notes of lantana and watermelon. The palate is generous and mouth filling with an exciting zesty acidity running through it. Melon and apricot flavours come forward on the palate finishing on a clean citrus note. Recent comments from the public who have tried it, say it is much like a Semillon or unwooded Chardonnay. Enjoy with steamed scallops, garlic prawns, sweet and sour pork and many other light Chinese and Japanese dishes.” - Scott Heidrich, Winemaker
