To anyone that has met Kym Teusner and Mick Page, it would come as no surprise to discover that Teusner Wines was conceived over a few beers at the local pub. An overseas study trip and a few vintages working for other wineries back home had filled them both with a love for old vine Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. Then a chanced overheard conversation between a couple of Barossa grape growers about an old vineyard facing the chop demanded they come up with a rescue plan. Scratching together a bit of cash, the fruit found a new home, the old vines stayed in the ground where they belonged and Teusner Wines came to life.

Teusner’s philosophy comes down to three simple words. True. Righteous. Pleasure.

50% grenache, 26% shiraz, 24% mataro, the grenache and mataro vines almost 100 yo, matured in used puncheons and hogsheads for 16 months. Retains both crimson hue and depth, the shiraz, despite being only a quarter of the blend, has a significant impact, both in terms of dark/black fruit flavour and firmer structure, but at the end of the day, it's the heady perfume and juicy red fruits of the grenache and mataro that make this glorious wine what it is.  Drink by: 2039; Price: $40.00;  Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 98 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
