Teusner Joshua GMS 2010

Interesting wine in that it sees no oak, well certainly nothing new, thus allowing the wine to be an expression of its fruit and constituent parts.

Suggest that there's a significant portion of whole berry on this wine, a further nod to its Southern Rhone origins.  Requisite raspbery and red fruit elements form the Grenache (58%) with the Mataro (32%) offering some depth and intrigue.  Tobacco leaf, more earth and a bit of meatiness; juice and pepper.

Overall there's a good flow of fruit with a light frame of tannin as you might expect from a Grenache dominant wine.  Balanced and as you'd expect from Kym Teusner, very well made.  Very Good - 92
