Teusner The Wark Family Shiraz 2020
HOT PRICE DOZEN BUY. Cracking single vineyard Barossa Shiraz
Leading Barossa wine maker Kym Teusner knows his shiraz and has come up with the goods here!
“One of the reasons I love the Barossa…and why it can claim to be ‘sacred Shiraz ground’…is the diversity of the vineyard landscape which allows us to produce so many different expressions of Shiraz from the one region. There’s been plenty of talk in recent years about classifying the various sub regions and I have my own views as to which are the best for Shiraz. The deep sandy soils of Ebenezer, the dry, lean and cooler conditions of the Eden Valley and the low yielding, rocky brown soils of Stonewell to the east of Tanunda would be my picks if anyone was to ask.
The Wark Family have been growing Shiraz at Stonewell since they planted their vineyard on their farm in 1995. They grow fantastic Barossa Shiraz, and each vintage for the past few years we’ve been taking a bit more of their fruit. In 2013, we released the first ‘Wark Family Shiraz made solely from fruit grown in their vineyard, with a label painted by artist and now vineyard owner Marnie Wark. This latest release continues the tradition of deeply coloured, rich, black fruited wines with ferrous ripe tannins to match. With the Wark Family Shiraz in your glass, you’ve got a wine from a single vineyard in one of the best sub districts in the Valley, planted by the family’s own hand and made by the
crew at Teusner….sounds like a bloody good wine to me!!”
The 2020 vintage is here and its another great vintage in the Barossa … reviews on 2019 – 91 points, Tyson Stelzer, Australian Wine Companion “From 25yo vines in the Wark family vineyard, Stonewell. Matured 12 months in older oak of mixed formats. This is what we love about modern Barossa shiraz: juicy, polished, supple and eminently slurpable. Kym Teusner’s signature is fruit over oak, artifact, everything – and this vintage exemplifies it. It’s downright delicious and ready to please any crowd. With fine, soft tannins and a little fruit sweetness poking out on the finish, it will appreciate a very slight chill.”
