Teusner Albert Shiraz 2005

Member Review by jasonkauf:

A big, thick plum shake with a "hint" of funk on the finish. If I hadn't been in the mood for a fruiit bomb, I would have despised it. But when I had it (on a deck overlooking Lake Champlain with a slight chill in the air) it was just what the doctor ordered.

They were aware of a few other old blocks that fruit could be sourced from, if required, and made the first release with 165 cases of 2002 Joshua. In addition to this about 8 hogsheads of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz was put aside, destined to be released around 24 months later as Avatar. Our philosophy is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit that we source from old, well maintained vineyards.
