Kym Teusner is an enthusiastic winemaker, graduate of Oenology at Adelaide. He was always focused upon returning to the Barossa and experimenting with the Rhone varieties that grow so well there. This drive led him to work with several high profile producers of Rhone style wines whilst working on the launch of his own label. The Dogs outnumber the humans at Teusner, and these four legged friends are in no peril whatsoever, but the name tells something about the wine, and Teusner are sure you'll love it. Parcels of Mataro are sourced from rare, precious sites scattered all over the Barossa, Vine Vale and Greenock, Moppa and Ebenezer, to craft a wine that's complex and a joy to drink.
Deep ruby red with purple flashes. Earthy and deeply spiced, saturated with deep, ripe black and dark berry fruits, plums, blackberry and mulberry with a dash of blueberry lift and hints of earth, leather, five spice, violets and schezuan pepper. The palate is well weighted and rich with broody dark and black berry fruits. Earthy and intense, with plenty of exotic spice, a touch of floral lift and savoury, ripe Mataro tannins on the lingering finish.
