Teusner The Independent Shiraz Mataro 2016
94 points for Kym Teusner's "commendable" Shiraz Mataro with "succulence" and "deliciousness"!
The Barossa’s exceptional Five Red Star Teusner estate was set up in 2001 by ex-Torbreck winemaker Kym Teusner and brother-in-law Mick Page. Halliday is a big fan – “as each year passes, the consistency, quality (and range) of the wines increases; there must be an end point, but it’s not easy to guess when, or even if, it will be reached”. He's also a fan (as are we) of this superb Shiraz Mataro. “An even split between Shiraz and Mataro, aged 1 year in seasoned oak. There’s a flurry of bright, juicy fruit, earthy, warm spices rolling onto palate just shy of full-bodied. There’s a succulence here with lithe tannins, there’s depth and structure; it’s absolutely commendable to make quality and deliciousness ... 94 points” (Halliday).
