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.
