A study trip to France and a few vintages working together in the Barossa had Kym and Mick full of love for old vine Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. Then an overheard conversation at the pub between a couple of Barossa grape growers about an old vineyard facing the chop…combined with the visionary power of plenty of Cooper’s Pale Ale…demanded they come up with a rescue plan.
Scratching together a bit of cash, the grapes found a new home, the old vines stayed in the ground where they belonged and Teusner Wines came to life.
Teusner growers are invited into the winery for a beer. They get to taste wines made from the old vine fruit their family has grown for generations. They’re paid well because they work hard and they’re good at what they do (as you’d expect from people that have been growing grapes for so many years!) In return, they stick by Kym and Mick and grow amazing fruit to make RIGHTEOUS TEUSNER WINES!
THE VERY LATEST IN TEUSNER NEWS
“If you’re looking for a rosé to buy/drink, this should be on your radar. It gives you fruit, all strawberries and redcurrant-like, but it’s also slipped with dry spice, campfire and slate-like notes; it keeps you happy through the mid-palate but it then finishes exquisitely dry. Ripper rosé.”
“Delicious wine: spot-on ripeness and decadent richness and the flavours are far from simple.”
“Violet and sweet cream/caramel characters add a more accessible drink-now element, though the tannin is stern and slow moving, like a large ship turning slowly through the tide of fruit…”
