When it comes to lathering our bbq bangers or flooding the tops of our pies in the red stuff, we at Teusner take a big detour around the sweet sugary mass market tomato sauce of questionable pedigree and provenance and go straight for the real gear. Home made from real tomatoes, grown by a real person in their real Barossa back garden including all the secret herbs and spices of a recipe long lost….but never forgotten. We’d be calling it ‘salsa’ and not sauce if the Spanish (not the Germans) had settled the Barossa.

Does not say which grapes it’s made from on the back label. They won’t like that will they, most Australians…
Fruity, but pretty much dry. Red fruits, light earthiness and spice with fresh fruit flavours, a lick of spice and gentle chalky texture. Perky acid, but not intrusive. Cool dry red. Good. Rating 91 - Drink by 2016, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (NOV/2014).
Winery Tasting Notes
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.
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.
Enjoy now and drink up to 2 years from vintage.
