Overview

Savoury, dry and food friendly, the new release of our Salsa is sure to win over those of you looking for something more than lolly water when it comes to a good rosé. A barrel fermented blend of Grenache, Mataro & Shiraz, specifically grown for the wine, rather than bled off other ferments. The 2011 Salsa is what rosé should be about....pure, satisfying drinking pleasure.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose is expressive and inviting with aromas of strawberries and cream, raspberry and redcurrant fruits with hints of white pepper, spice, thyme, licorice and creamy lees characters.

Palate

On the palate the wine is weighted just right and fills the mouth with lifted red berry fruits, maraschino cherry, raspberry, candied citrus rind and soft spice with a good dash of Mataro earthiness.... again with an attractive white pepper lift poking through the vibrant fruit.. The wine finishes, long, dry and savoury. A wine for drinkers who are serious about their rose.

Cellaring

Enjoy now and drink up to 2 years from vintage.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Teusner Wines came into being late in 2001 when Kym Teusner witnessed a conversation between his girlfriend’s uncle and his brother. They were discussing the viability of an old Grenache vineyard, planted in the Northern Barossa Valley by their grandfather. The low yields and low prices being paid by the ‘Big Boys’ meant that the vineyard was running at a loss and was facing certain destruction! Kym was loath to hear this and approached his brother in law, now business partner, to see if they could scratch together enough cash to keep these gnarled old vines in the ground. In that first year they raised enough capital for only about a quarter of the fruit from that vineyard, but this was enough for the Riebke brothers to stall their plans for these precious old vines. They were aware of a few other old blocks that fruit could be sourced from, if required, and made the first release with 165 cases of 2002 Joshua. In addition to this about 8 hogsheads of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz was put aside, destined to be released around 24 months later as Avatar.

Our philosophy is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit that we source from old, well maintained vineyards. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which we guide, with minimal inputs, into wine. Our fruit sources are predominantly family and close friends, which allows us this selectivity in which fruit we vinify.
