Teusner Avatar GMS 2021
The blend percentages for Avatar might change each vintage, but the recipe doesn’t vary much… the 2021 vintage blends 50% Grenache for spice and bright red fruits, 30% Mataro for some savoury earthiness and depth and 20% Shiraz for plump plum and rich black fruit. The time in oak… and the choice of old seasoned oak…ensures it serves only as a seasoning to add complexity and savoury nuance. With vines this old, we want the fruit and earth to speak with the clearest voice.
”From the terrific 2021 vintage, our 20th. Plum, redcurrant, campfire and sweet wooded spice. Fine velvety tannins, complimented by great acid line and a juicy mid palate. A super release from one of the originals.“
