Teusner Joshua GMS 2013

“For anyone who has ever met my business partner Mick Page and I, it would come as no surprise to learn that the idea for Teusner Wines was conceived at the pub over a few beers. That first wine, like Mick’s first son, was called Joshua. Since the first vintage (2002) was released, the recipe hasn’t changed a whole lot. Typically a blend Grenache (68%) and a chunk of Mataro (23%) from 100 year old vines at Ebenezer blended with a splash of Shiraz (9%) from 20 year old vines at Gomersal.”

Teusner Joshua GMS 2013 is a ruby coloured wine with strong intensity of fruit aromas – blackcurrants, plums, blackberries, black cherries and redcurrants. A touch of spices with intense thyme aromas.

In the mouth Teusner Joshua GMS 2013 is dry, fruity, potent and complex. The redcurrant acidity, subtle tannins, full body and solid structure are the main characteristics of this wine. There are lots of fruit flavours on the palate such as blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry. Finish hollow and lingering with blackcurrant and black pepper.
