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.

60% grenache, 30% mataro, 10% shiraz, the grenache and mataro warm-fermented, the shiraz fermented cooler. Brilliant clear purple-crimson, exceptional for these varieties - only Teusner can achieve this depth and purity of the red and blue fruits of this blend in the Barossa Valley. It has first class texture and structure, and is so glorious now it's hard to resist wolfing it down, even though it has a great future. All this from only 6 days on skins.

Effortless drinking and effortless complexity. It’s something of a holy grail. It’s reductive, smoky, spicy, a bit meaty, earthen, and generally savoury to its neck. It’s also though ripped with anise and raspberry and assorted berries and florals, all which keeps the juices well and truly flowing. Delicious. Totally.
