Overview

“Whilst Mick Page and I are both great mates and business partners, we’re different blokes. How different? Well it depends on who you talk to…but one thing’s for sure, when it comes to who does what at Teusner Wines, we’re poles apart. I’m the bloke with his name on the label, the man out on the road, in the spotlight, selling and promoting our wine. Mick is the opposite, happy to take a back seat, rarely in the limelight, content to get on with the job of doing what needs to be done to keep the place ticking over. Each doing what comes naturally is ultimately what has made our lives as mates and as business partners awesome! More often than not…in life (and also in wine)…the companionship of contrasting characters can produce great results."

Winery Tasting Notes

The Eden Valley component (75%) comes from David Forrest’s vineyard planted at around 450 meters above sea level…easily some of the best Cabernet I taste each year. The Barossa Valley portion (25%) is from the Righteous vineyard at Marananga, just across the way from the Torbreck Laird vineyard, at around 270 meters. The fruit was vinified separately and then matured in a 50/50 blend of new French oak barriques and older seasoned wood.

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.
