Teusner is a portrait of the Barossa Valley as a community. Helmed by Kym Teusner and Mick Page, who began their wine partnership as saviours of a plot of old-vine Grenache marked for extermination, it now unites a tight-knit network of local growers who give voice to the disparate landscape of Australia’s most famous wine region: the Barossa Valley. Sourced from vineyards dotting the area’s western edge and named for the exuberant alter-ego of a Teusner grower once he’s enjoyed a couple of glasses of red wine, the Bilmore steps a bold, elegant foot into the trademark silky-soft Shiraz from this particular corner of the Barossa.
The flavours pop up like the plastic clowns at the Easter Show, either to be shot or stunned and lie flat at the end of the moving belt. There is a persistent tune with spicy/savoury/preserve flavours that works very well for me, even if left field.

2001 found Kym Teusner and Mick Page tossing back a couple of pints at a local pub, where they overheard grapegrowers discussing the imminent destruction of some then-85-year-old Grenache vines. The duo came to the rescue, and offered them 4 times what they’d been paid by ‘the big guys’ for the crop if they’d keep the vineyard in the ground.
