Teusner Family Shiraz 2012

A new offering in the Teusner line-up, smartly packaged with a proprietary bottle and adorned with artwork from a member of the family that the wine honours.

Got to respect Kym Teusner and Michael Page, they've been showing the love to, and recognising the contribution of their growers (Riebke Shiraz) and their own families (Albert Shiraz and Joshua GMS) from the beginning.

Now it's the turn of the Wark family, Barossa stalwarts, as the marketing spiel goes: "Whenever they have cause to be away, there is always a yearning to return. They love it for its people and their stories, its food, wine and the rituals of the seasons."

Layered, black cherry and satsuma plum with some chocolate aromatics overlaid. There's even a suggestion of almond/ marzipan lurking in the background, could be just me.

Dark, black, broody - lit up with a little blue fruit too. Pretty full on, hints of chocolate and twists of brown licorice. Alternately dense, yet also very approachable. Tannin here is fine, a little dusty, providing a powdery mouth-coating and tenacious finish. 90 - Good
