98 Points, James Halliday - the Cheapest ever 98 Point red!


"98 Points. 50% grenache, 26% shiraz, 24% mataro, the grenache and mataro vines almost 100 yo, matured in used puncheons and hogsheads for 16 months. Retains both crimson hue and depth, the shiraz, despite being only a quarter of the blend, has a significant impact, both in terms of dark/black fruit flavour and firmer structure, but at the end of the day, it's the heady perfume and juicy red fruits of the grenache and mataro that make this glorious wine what it is. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. To 2039. $40" James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2018.

50% grenache, 26% mataro, 24% shiraz. The Teusner range looks to be in very fine form, from what I’ve so-far tasted. The up-front appeal is simple and fun but when it gets to the finish it spreads and runs in the most wonderful fashion. The fruit here is high quality to say the least. It tastes of concentrated raspberry and woodsmoke, earth and anise, the finish then gently herbal and spicy in the most positive and sweet-scented of ways. The aromatics, the flavours, the mouthfeel and the finish; it impresses from all angles. Price: $40.; Drink: 2017-2024+;  Rated: 94 Points. Campbell Mattinson. The Wine Front

Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
