A beautifully styled big and bold wine with earthy and
savoury flavours. Southern Rhone with an Australian
twist.
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.
Vineyard
Sourced from the perimeter of the Barossa. The key here is the age of the Grenache
vines, which are between 65 to 130 years old and are mostly in bush vine format. The
fruit is 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 and during this vinification process the
temperature of each of the ferments differed. Mataro and Grenache were allowed
to get a bit warmer during the 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. The parcels were blended just prior to
bottling.
Tasting Note
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.
Serving Suggestion
