True & Righteous Pleasure
Teusner MC Barossa Valley Sparkling Shiraz 2009
Region: Barossa Valley
"'Built for Bacon'.....that could well apply to most of the staff here at Teusner Wines but we believe that Sparkling Shiraz came into being as early man began to ponder the age old question.. "What to drink with breakfast".
That’s not to restrict ourselves to the first meal of the day of course. You can crack open a bottle of Teusner Sparkling Shiraz whenever you need a lift or have something to celebrate. It is a versatile food wine (try it on Christmas Day with ham!) or is a pleasure to drink just on its own.
Our 2005 and 2006 vintage releases gathered some fantastic reviews and the 2009 has already racked up 95 points from Tyson Stelzer, 94 points from James Halliday and 93+ points from Jeremy Pringle...validation of our decision to only pick the best Barossa Shiraz vineyards for this wine. We tend to take it easy with the dosage also....we aim for a savoury, pure fruit driven style without any sugary trickery and cloying finish. With extended time on lees the resulting wine, I’m sure you will agree, is delicious drinking and will continue to improve in the cellar over the medium term.
So enjoy the wine....whatever time of day you choose to partake!'
