Region: Barossa Valley
First Glance: Dark Fruited, Fresh Acid, Supple, Long Finish
Albert Shiraz is named after Kym Teusner’s Grandfather, Albert Alfred Teusner…a man admired for his commitment and his persistence. Like previous vintages, Albert Shiraz is made from parcels of fruit sourced from a couple of Teusner's favourite vineyards….an old block at Ebenezer in the Barossa’s North and another at the Barossa’s North West at Koonunga.
This wine shows a complex aromatic of dark fruits, hints of menthol spice and charcuterie, paired with a palate packed with boysenberry, black satsuma plum, black cherry and cassis with great intensity and length. Tannins are fine grained, supple, long and well balance with the acidity to see this wine cellar beautifully over the next decade or so.
"99 Points. Barossa Valley shiraz doesn't come much better than this. The vintage was perfect but few nailed the opportunity as well as winemakers Kym Teusner and Javier Moll. The silky elegance and balance are coupled with purity and freshness in a manner seldom seen.14.5% alc. Drink to 2046."- James Halliday, Top 100 Wines 2023
