Classic Barossa blend of grenache, mataró and shiraz, aged in seasoned oak barrels, delicious drinking today but is a wine that will continue to improve over the medium term. Detailed aromas of dark blackberries and plums, Asian spices, veal jus, pepper, earth and mocha oak.

Set up by Kym Teusner and Michael Page in the Barossa in 2001, Teusner’s philosophy is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit that is sourced from old, well maintained vineyards. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which are guided, with minimal inputs, into wine. “Teusner was started by doing what we love, we never mapped it out to be so big. We started small and rode the wave and this is where we’ve ended. These are wines that we love to drink, we are not chasing markets,” explains Winemaker Kym Teusner.
