In the wonderful wide world of wine, you will find over sixty aliases for Mataro. Mourvedre from the Côtes du Rhône and the Spanish Monastrell are amongst the most familiar, as well as lesser known pseudonyms such as Balzac and Esparte. Custodians of the finest parcels of Barossa Mataro, the house of Teusner are Australia's most accomplished purveyors of this complex and engaging, esoteric varietal. Teusner's favourite by far is the French construct known as estrangle chien, the dog strangler, due to its bestial tannins.
Kym Teusner is an enthusiastic winemaker, graduate of Oenology at Adelaide. He was always focused upon returning to the Barossa and experimenting with the Rhone varieties that grow so well there. This drive led him to work with several high profile producers of Rhone style wines whilst working on the launch of his own label. The Dogs outnumber the humans at Teusner, and these four legged friends are in no peril whatsoever, but the name tells something about the wine, and Teusner are sure you'll love it. Parcels of Mataro are sourced from rare, precious sites scattered all over the Barossa, Vine Vale and Greenock, Moppa and Ebenezer, to craft a wine that's complex and a joy to drink.
TASTING NOTES
Deep ruby red with purple flashes. Earthy and deeply spiced, saturated with deep, ripe black and dark berry fruits, plums, blackberry and mulberry with a dash of blueberry lift and hints of earth, leather, five spice, violets and schezuan pepper. The palate is well weighted and rich with broody dark and black berry fruits. Earthy and intense, with plenty of exotic spice, a touch of floral lift and savoury, ripe Mataro tannins on the lingering finish.

More About Teusner Wines
Teusner Wines is an artisanal, youthful expression of revered old Barossa vines, brought into focus by the efforts of devoted growers and the skills of the winemaker
Teusner Wines came into being late in 2001 when Kym Teusner witnessed a conversation between his girlfriend’s uncle and his brother. They were discussing the viability of an old Grenache vineyard, planted in the Northern Barossa Valley by their grandfather. The low yields and low prices being paid by the ‘Big Boys’ meant that the vineyard was running at a loss and was facing certain destruction! Kym was loath to hear this and approached his brother in law, now business partner, to see if they could scratch together enough cash to keep these gnarled old vines in the ground. Teusner»
