Kym Teusner was crowned king by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine as 07 Young Winemaker of the Year.
A wine that displays copious amounts of fresh red berry fruits (grenache) and dusty tobacco leaf, without the intrusion of oak influence. A splash of mataro adds to the earthy complexity, whilst a little shiraz is used for structure and weight.
This 2021 is a brand new vintage (not made in 2020) and by all accounts from a stella vintage in the Barossa.
Kym Teusner says about the 2021 .. “Our very first wine, and like (my business partner) Mick’s first son, we called it/ him Joshua. The blend is true to form with Grenache (55%) and Mataro (35%) from 100 year old vines at Ebenezer in the north west with a splash of Shiraz from 20 year old vineyards at Gomersal on the western ridge. A mix of light and dark fresh ripe berried fruits, cured meats and lifted spice on the nose sets you up for mouthful of savoury and gamey
flavour in the mouth. We keep our Josh’ away from oak and release it young to showcase the kind of juicy, spicy,
flavorsome Barossa reds that we like to knock back over lunch with a plate of the good gear from the local butcher in Nuriootpa.”
Review of last vintage: “Grenache, mataro and shiraz made in a fresh, earthen style. Love the way this wine presents. It’s exuberant with fruit, ripe fruit, but it’s not stupidly sweet or simple. It carries earthen, woodsy notes but it’s not challenging or overt. It doesn’t demand anything of you, it just delivers pure Barossa fruit flavour, sans overt oak, sans ego or complication. It’s the modern Barossa in a glass, or the best side of the modern Barossa anyway.” 92 points Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
“Deeply coloured and flavoured, the absence of oak in no way depriving the wine of the needed texture and structure. Quality grapes and sensitive winemaking were all that was needed.” 92 points, James Halliday.
