  • $30.00*

Often referred to as the big brother to our un-oaked Joshua GMS, the 2015 Avatar release has a little more Shiraz in the blend than other recent vintages and we consider it our stand out wine of the vintage. Grenache still dominates the blend with spice and red-fruited lift and Mataro adds earthiness and some resounding bass notes.
Winemaker Notes

Medium-bodied with great definition, fruit clarity and a lovely seam of bright acidity, the 2015 Avatar is a wine that we are very pleased with….and we are sure you will be too.

Blend: Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro

Bouquet: The 2015 Avatar shows a generous, expressive bouquet with plum and black cherry aromas with a splash of higher toned cranberry. Underlying the ripe fruit you’ll find hints of Asian spice, dried citrus peel, licorice, gingerbread, milk chocolate, jasmine and notes of well-integrated mocha oak.

Palate: Vibrant, well-weighted and spice-laden on the initial entry to the palate, the Avatar shows ripe fruit flavours of plum, blackberry and black cherry with hints of raspberry and cranberry providing lift. There are hints of Asian and baking spice, ginger-cake, chocolate, dried flowers, licorice and judicious, seasoned oak along with a healthy dose of earthy, Mataro goodness. Medium-bodied on the palate the wine wraps up with great balance, bright acidity, supple, ripe tannins and a finish that is both persistent and spicy.

Cellaring: Enjoy the 2012 Teusner Avatar over the next 5-8 years.
