Teusner's Joshua is an un-oaked version of the classic Barossa blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, with the newly released 2014 vintage being proclaimed as one of their finest yet. Joshua's vibrancy and purity of fruit have won the wine many fans...lifted spice & red-fruits from the Grenache, earth and savoury nuance from the Mataro and a dash of horsepower and palate weight from the Shiraz....pretty much the perfect combination.

Expert Reviews

Low (or no) oak but full of attractive fruit flavour. There's just enough tannin to give the wine shape and keep all those exuberant fruits tidy as well. Blueberry, aniseed, five spice, florals. It's jubey, joyous and quite unreasonably delicious. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 93, 27th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

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. Like all 2012 wines, the aromas and flavours are pure and fresh reflecting the quality of this incredible vintage.

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.
