Teusner Joshua Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2013 new release

Teusner Joshua Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2013 is so goddam juicy and delicious we couldn’t wait to get it into our cellar.  Seems Gary Walsh from the Wine Front is a fan … 94 points! “Strikes me as a curious thing that the Barossa Valley’s ‘flagship’ wines are rarely blends. Straight Shiraz. Straight Grenache. Straight Mataro. Anyway, here we have ‘An age old blend of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz from ancient Barossa vines combining to create a complex wine with that touch of spunk…’ Cherry pip, raspberry, boysenberry, spice, coal, flowers – smells lively and the taste delivers on the promise of the nose. Medium bodied, juicy and savoury at once, with vigorous but well settled acidity and a carriage of dry shaping tannin. Length is excellent, and for heaven’s sake, it even seems ‘minerally’ on the finish. Vivacious and firm. Great follow up to the 2012.”
