Teusner MC Sparkling Shiraz 2005
LAST OF THIS VINTAGE!
Out of stock
The first Sparkling Shiraz from leading Barossa winemaker Kym Teusner and what a wine! Forget the cranberry sauce, this is the perfect accompaniment to the roast turkey! Base wine comprises top shelf single vineyard shiraz south of Tanunda followed by 2 yrs maturation in French oak and 2 years on lees in bottle to create a fine and pesrsistent bead. Topped up with splash of Joshua 09 (Teusner ‘s zippy GSM blend) at liquering to add some freshness. More-ish dry style and has the structure to age and develop for at least a decade.
94 points, Tyson Stelzer “Every grand celebration needs an MC to direct proceedings. This one will silence the room and hold fort until breakfast with all the plum and blackberry fruit purity for which Kym Teusner is renowned. “
June/July 2011 Gourmet Traveller Wine “The finest new Barossa sparkling in years. Masterfully assembled, brim full of black fruits and mixed spice,with dark choc oak sitting obediently behind and soft supple tannins doing as they’re told. “
92 points Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front … ” It’s blackberried, chocolately, bright enough and spicy enough. There are some dried herb characters too and lots of slinky, easy drinking appeal. Lots of purple, frothy exuberance. I’d be (more than) happy to buy and drink this. Very fresh, nice complexity, good oomph – and potential to mature well in the bottle. We have a live one here.”
95 points James Halliday “a very elegant and complex sparkling shiraz. the dosage not too high nor the base wine too oaky. long. fine and savoury flavours. with good persistence and aftertaste. Drink till 2020″
