Classic Cabernet, deeply coloured showing minty and
exotic blackcurant fruit with a mouthfilling texture,
smooth and rich.
Producer Note
Established 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,
which is sourced from old, well maintained vineyards in Barossa. These vineyards
reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which are guided, with minimal input, into
stunning wines. Kym decided to make the Righteous Shiraz because he wanted to
showcase his own expression of what he considers the ultimate Barossa Valley Shiraz
style...intense, powerful and long-lived.
Vintage
Eden Valley saw good winter rainfall, but low rainfall in January and the lowest mean
maximum temperature in January for 23 years. Eden Valley avoided the hot
February seen elsewhere in the region, instead enjoying a wonderful ripening period
with no hot spells. Standout varieties are Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz,
with yields just below average.
Vineyard
The vineyard is approximately 16 years old and is located on the edge of High Eden,
in the Eden Valley. This area has a cool climate, with high winds, which ventilate the
vineyards. The soils are very depleted and low in nutrients, with a high level of
ironstone. Mulching is carried out in the vineyard to compensate for the low water
availability. The vines produce low yields of between one and two and a half tonnes
per acre, often lower, resulting in concentrated fruit.
Winemaking
The fruit was destemmed and fermented in five to ten tonne open fermenters, with
twice daily pump overs. A neutral yeast was used during the fermentation, which
took place at temperatures of 20 to 24°C and lasted for five days. The wine was
pressed to barrel. Predominantly older oak was used for the maturation, with a small
proportion of refreshed barrels. The wine rested in barrel for 12 months.
Tasting Note
Perfumed fruits of the forest and menthol undertones make this exotic Cabernet sing.
It is smooth and rich but with a silky moreish finish.
Serving Suggestion
A fantastic wine to pair with a Gaucho style steak or grilled pork chops with
rosemary.
