Teusner The G Grenache 2020 South Australia Barossa Valley

$27.95

Teusner The G Grenache 2020

Sourced from vineyards located around the perimeter of most of the entire valley! The increasing elevations of these locations brings cooler nights and impacts the grapes to enhance bright acidities and freshness with supporting but not intrusive tannin.

We tend to get the bright fresh Asian/North African spices from the deep sands, lifted red summer fruits from the northern red clays and savoury richness from the southern loams. Climatically these sub regions are also quite distinct from each other which helps build the complexity in the wine. 2020 was very dry – spring rainfall was well down on average and there was close to zero summer rainfall. Warm but not excessively hot temps throughout the growing season combined with the low rainfall led to rich and concentrated reds with good structure and balance. By picking early, we ensured the fruit retained a brilliant vitality and freshness, without being over ripe. As a result, the wine is only just medium bodied, which, when combined with the bright acidity and the complex but fresh aromatic makes it such a refreshing and enjoyable drink that can be enjoyed with almost any food!

“Grenache is part of our DNA at Teusner. It’s our blood. The first wine we ever made, 2002 Joshua, 65% Grenache. Our mates said we were mad – “no one even knows what Grenache is, you’ll never sell it” they told us. Didn’t matter. Made it anyway. Now one of our signature wines. Love the stuff. Over 130 years of provenance in the Barossa can’t be wrong. Surely?”
