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. Scratching together a bit of cash, the fruit from an old Barossa vineyard found a new home and Teusner Wines came to life. Teusner’s philosophy comes down to two simple words. Righteous Pleasure. Let the righteous flavours found in the old Barossa vineyards take center stage in the wines and bring pleasure to those that put their hand in their pocket to buy them. It’s a simple approach, but one that has gained Teusner an army of fans and had the commentators and critics singing the praises of his wines as modern day benchmarks for the Barossa Valley.
Whilst Shiraz might be the poster boy for the Barossa, Teusner beleive Grenache and Mataro produces the best drinking wines from this region. Thanks to their good mates the Riebke brothers and other Barossa growers whose families have stuck by these varieties for the past 100 years or more, they have sourced fruit from very old vines to make this GSM blend.
Old vine grenache, mataro and shiraz. Firm, bold, fresh and characterful. A terrific release. Plum, redcurrant, campfire and sweet spice. Ribs of velvety tannin. Somehow manages to feel both generous and controlled. Super. Drink to: 2030; Price: $40.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2019; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
