Teusner Avatar Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2016 and 2018 available

The Avatar Grenache Mataro Shiraz from Teusner Wines is a delicious full bodied red wine that pairs wonderfully with cottage pie and mature cheddar. The skilfull blend of these three Barossa grape varieties ensures the resulting red wine is savoury, spicey and supple.

Set up by Kym Teusner and Michael Page in 2001, Teusner's philosophy is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit that is sourced from old, well maintained vineyards. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which are guided, with minimal inputs, into wine. “Teusner was started by doing what we love, we never mapped it out to be so big. We started small and rode the wave and this is where we've ended. These are wines that we love to drink' explains Winemaker Kym Teusner.

Vineyard

Sourced from the perimeter of the Barossa, where it elevates. A key difference here is the age of the vines, which are between 65 to 130 years old and are mostly in bush vine format. Sourced from several subregions, Ebeneezer has the oldest vines - the exact age of the vines is not 100% certain, suffice to say that three generations have seen them grow!

Winemaking

All the parcels were fermented separately. The main difference during the vinification process was the temperature of ferments. Mataro and Grenache were allowed to get a bit hotter during fermentation, to reduce the risk of confected notes. This also helped to preserve the savoury characteristics of the Grenache. 30% of the Shiraz saw new oak for a period of 12 months, which accounts for 10% of the entire blend. The parcels were blended just before bottling.

Tasting Note

Avatar Grenache Mataro Shiraz is one of Kym Teusner's most famous blends. Briary, earthy flavours from the Grenache are integrated seamlessly with the autumn fruit notes from the Shiraz and Mataro. Finely grained tannins carry the flavours along perfectly into a long and rewarding finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
