The Albert shiraz takes its name from my grandfather, Albert Alfred Teusner, a man whom I admired for his commitment and persistence.
Albert Shiraz is made from parcels of fruit sourced from a couple of our favourite old vine vineyards – one in Ebenezer in the Barossa’s north and another at the Barossa’s south eastern-most extremity of Williamstown. Both of these vineyards were planted over 60 years ago. In general, the wines from 2013 are fine and elegant with that typical underlying Barossa richness and sense of power. The old vineyards of the Barossa tend to yield fruit with elevated concentration of flavour and soft, supple and velvety tannins that set them apart from the younger stuff. The Ebenezer vineyard gives this wine its lifted perfume and complexity whilst the Williamstown block provides darkness and muscle. The wine shows a complex aromatic of dark fruits, hints of menthol spice and processed meats.
A palate packed with blackberry, black satsuma plum, black cherry and cassis with great intensity and length.” KYM TEUSNER
