Teusner Wines Joshua Barossa 2006

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

An unoaked, dry red wine that's based on Grenache. The fruit is tangy, full of blackberries and blueberries. A mildly minty red wine that's generous with fruit but shows it in a more subtle fashion.

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. In that first year they raised enough capital for only about a quarter of the fruit from that vineyard, but this was enough for the Riebke brothers to stall their plans for these precious old vines. 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.
