Teusner Joshua Grenache Shiraz Mataro as good as Chateauneuf du Pape!

Teusner’s Joshua GSM blend is so darn good – Chateauneuf du Pape of this quality would cost you at least double …  Came across this rave from Campbell Mattinson:    “A completely unoaked blend of mostly old vine Barossan Grenache (65%) and Mataro, with (10%) shiraz to finish it off. It is so good it makes you wonder about oak itself. With fruit as good as this oak can only lessen it.   Spice, raspberries and minerals and lots and lots of earth and aniseed savoury deliciousness, it packs a punch and carries long too, the minerally spice ringing out through the aftertaste.  This is the kind of earthwine the Barossa has long-since promised but seldom delivers. It’s warm with alcohol, but within the style it works. At under 25 bucks it’s compelling value. 93 points Campbell Mattinson – Winefront Monthly
