Teusner Albert Shiraz
Barossa
Available in cases of 6
Albert is the namesake of Teusner's grandfather, commemorated for his tireless hard work and commitment. Albert is sourced from two small blocks of low yielding unirrigated vines, aged between fifty and a hundred years, one precious site in the Barossa's north at Ebenezer and the other, near the valley's southern most parts at Williamstown. Pure and expressive, displaying the power, elegance and generosity of splendid old vines Shiraz, Albert is a joy to drink now and will continue to evolve magical Barossa richness.

Grapes are crushed into open fermenters and treated to a regimen of twice daily pumpovers before heading to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels for eighteen months maturation. Treated to a painstaking vinification technique, portions of the active juices are taken off daily to ferment in new French oak barrels which are used to mature the finished wine. After twelve hours, juices are returned to the ferment and replaced by a fresh batch, allowing better integration of new oak into the wine. Upon completion, barrels are classified and the final wine is determined, components are assembled and returned to barrel for a further term of integration before bottling without fining or filtration.
 
A very deep colour reflects the intensity of wine. Concentrated, opulent aromas of blackberry, satsuma plum, black cherry and cassis burst from the glass. Soft, supple and velvety tannins in support of dark chocolate, licorice and polished leather. Intense but showing great tension between the ripe fruit, melt in the mouth tannins and bright acidity, Albert finishes with great length and aplomb.
Teusner Avatar Grenache Shiraz Mataro
Barossa
Available by the dozen
Half Grenache with the balance of Shiraz and Mourvedre, grown to some fantastic old vine stock, most are a century of age, treated to a spell in well seasoned barrels. The oak influence is minimal, serving to complex and mature the wine rather than to impart flavour. So marked must be the profile of fruit to make the cut for Avatar, that initial classification of the components takes place immediately after vintage. Well balanced and round, a wine of earthy, savoury complexity, displaying ripe fleshy fruits, bramble and licorice spice.

The operations at Teusner are focused on exceptional wines, by being very selective about the quality of grapes, grown to old, well maintained vineyards. The sources are predominantly family and close friends. Parcels that are recognized for their suitability to barrel age are held back, as individual components, for a year before assembling. Grenache and Mataro are picked off some stately old vineyards in Ebenezer. Shiraz hails from younger but mature vines at Williamstown. Components are treated to several days of cold soak, followed by ferments peaking at 28°C. Upon completion, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned oak puncheons and hogsheads for a year's maturation.
 
Scarlet red, darker robes. Aromas of deep set plum and dark berry fruits leap from the glass, Asian spice, roasted meats and earth, licorice and dark chocolate. The palate displays excellent texture with ripe plum and blackberry fruit, five spice, mocha chocolate and licorice. The generous, supple fruit flows over to a prolonged finish, clean and well balanced, with ripe, fine grained tannins over a seam of bright acidity.

Teusner Dog Strangler Mataro
Barossa
Available by the dozen
In the wonderful wide world of wine, you will find over sixty aliases for Mataro. Mourvedre from the Côtes du Rhône and the Spanish Monastrell are amongst the most familiar, as well as lesser known pseudonyms such as Balzac and Esparte. Custodians of the finest parcels of Barossa Mataro, the house of Teusner are Australia's most accomplished purveyors of this complex and engaging, esoteric varietal. Teusner's favourite by far is the French construct known as estrangle chien, the dog strangler, due to its bestial tannins.

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.

Teusner The Riebke Shiraz
Barossa
Available by the dozen
The initial release of Riebke Ebenezer was conceived during an economic decline in Barossa Valley. The Riebke family were being paid very little for their Shiraz and asked Teusner if he was on the market for quality fruit. Teusner agreed to produce a wine but made no promises, as they hadn't even seen the harvest. The epiphany occurred as soon as fermentations began and the winemakers knew that they had come across something very special indeed. A tip of the hat to the Riebke brothers, whose vineyards play the essential role in the wines of Teusner.

To make great wine you must have great fruit. Kym Teusner became inspired by the grand old vineyards of the Barossa Valley after taking charge of a venture to salvage ancient sites which had been planted to vines by his grandfather. The old and distinguished Riebke vineyards are located in the northern settlements of Ebenezer, Moppa and Kalimna, but Leon, Steve and Nick Riebke consistently produce some of the finest Shiraz to be found anywhere in the Barossa. After tending their vines for five generations, Riebke have a pretty good handle on their piece of dirt. Post fermentation the individual components are treated to a year's maturation in a selection of prior use French and American oak hogsheads.
 
Deeply coloured. Sweetly scented with lifted aromas of satsuma plum, black berries and cherry with some blueberry lift. Hints of liquorice, asian spice, kirsch and cola, sarsparilla and enticing violet. The palate is densely packed and bursting with dark fruits, kirsch and plum, liquorice, jasmine and a dose of Barossa earth. The concentrated, opulent fruit finishes long, dry and savoury over ripe, chalky tannins.
Teusner Wines is an artisanal, youthful expression of revered old Barossa vines, brought into focus by the efforts of devoted growers and the skills of the winemaker

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.

Teusner

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.

Kym Teusner is an enthusiastic winemaker, a graduate from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Science (Oenology Major). He was always focused upon returning to the Barossa and experimenting with Rhone varieties that grow so well there. Once finished his studies, this drive led him to work with several high profile producers of Rhone style wines whilst working on the launch of his own label.

Viticulturalist Michael Page grew up on his family vineyard in the south Australian Riverland town of Barmera. In his early 20s he purchased his own 30 acre plot of old vines and consistently produced fruit worthy of top bonuses. The 1990s took their toll on this venture, and when growers started getting paid for their fruit in brandy spirit Michael decided it was time to look to greener pastures. He began developing vineyards for other people which led him to settle in the Barossa Valley.

The philosophy at Teusner is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit sourced from old, well maintained vineyards. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which is handled, with minimal inputs, into wine. The sources are predominantly family and close friends, which allows great selectivity in which fruit is ultimately vinified.

"Like an inquisitive walk into a dark and cool cellar with a little dusty oak in the air, then deeper again there are loads of beautifully weighted dark fruits in the core of the wine, some garden herbs around the edges and long lasting pleasure all over!" -(Albert Shiraz) The Advertiser, "The Teusner philosophy is to showcase the Barossa Valley in wines that are first and foremost affordable. The Riebke is the one that most clearly shows this promise. The fruit is sourced from Ebenezer and it has spent time in old oak hogsheads so that the fruit shines without distraction. It’s a delicious, plush, juicy shiraz at a ridiculous price!" -Riebke Shiraz (Brisbane News), "This is a joyous Shiraz with its subtle and vibrant fruit notes of plums and red berries on the nose, lightly spiced, fruit....cakey too with hints of chocolate and cedary notes alongside a plush mid-palate, ripe and voluptuous with giving tannins but nothing heavy-handed as it glides on to an excellent,long finish...mmmmm!" -Riebke Shiraz (The Age)

"Spicy, seductive and alluring, she goes by no other name than grenache. With her favourite dance partner mataro, they tear up the night. The backbone of shiraz cutting in at the end. Thats the label of this rose thats full of tangy, juicy fruit fragrant with rose petal and rhubarb notes, some creaminess and sweet fruit on the palate before finishing dry with crisp acidity!" -Salsa Rose (The Age)
