Teusner 2015 ‘Avatar’ Grenache Mataro Shiraz

$35.00

The Wine: Teusner ‘Avatar’ Grenache Mataro Shiraz

50% Grenache, 26% Shiraz, 24% Mataro

The Grenache and Mataro vines almost 100yo, matured in used puncheons and hogsheads for 16 months. Retains both crimson hue and depth; the shiraz, despite being only a quarter of the blend, has a significant impact, both in terms of dark/black fruit flavour and firmer structure, but at the end of the day, it’s the heady perfume and juicy red fruits of the Grenache and Mataro that make this glorious wine what it is.

The Winery:

Unsurprisingly for Kym Teusner and Mick Page, beer played a major role in their decision to start Teusner Wines in 2001. After a few cold ones they overheard a couple of grape growers contemplating removal of their 85 year old Grenache vines, Kym and Mick stepped up to the plate and offered them 4 times what they’d been paid by ‘the big guys’ for the crop if they’d keep the vineyard in the ground.

The offer was accepted, the vines stayed in the ground, Teusner Wines came to life with a singular mission – to make the kind of wines they liked to drink!
