Teusner 'MC' Sparkling Shiraz 2010 (Barossa Valley, South Australia) "...chocolate, liquorice, spice..."
“Clear crimson-purple; while made using traditional method, the wordy back label doesn’t disclose either the date of tirage nor that of disgorgement; it is a gloriously high-toned shiraz, its spice and licorice flavours highlighted by the secondary fermentation, resulting in elegance and intensity.”
94 POINTS, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion, May 2014
“Sparkling Shiraz is a tricky balancing act between succulent fruit, subtle sweetness, understated oak, lush tannins and lively acidity, and Kym Teusner has nailed it here, Vibrant blueberries meet liquorice and dark chocolate.”
95 POINTS, Tyson Stelzer, Barossa Living, Autumn 2014
“Remarkably fresh fruited but it’s not all about primary, juicy character. Drinking chocolate, new leather, spiced orange peel, licorice and nuts accompany the cherry-berry fruits and plums. Depth of savoury flavour with plenty of drying, silty tannin. No cloying dosage. Oak is situated adroitly within the overall package. Persistent, delicious, clean and moreish.”
