‘Joshua holds a special place at Teusner. It was the first wine Mick and I made, launching Teusner Wines back in 2002. We love the juicy, spicy flavours of the classic Barossa Varietals – Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz – untouched by the influence of Oak. Along the way it (and us) has made many friends.” Kym Teusner.

Winery Tasting Notes
This was a wonderful year for Barossa reds. The Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz all looked as good as we could remember seeing since we started Teusner. The 70 year old Grenache grown in the sandy soils of the Riebke vineyard in Northern Barossa provides the back bone for this wine. Mataro is sourced from the harder red dirt around Williamstown in the south and Stockwell in the North and the blend is rounded out with about 14% Shiraz from the Koonunga sub district.
63% Grenache, 23% Mataro, 14% Shiraz
There are aromas of ripe, dark plums and nuances of chocolate.
The palate is soft and friendly with mouth filling flavour and fine, spicy Mataro tannins.
