Welcome to Artisans of Barossa
"We will share with you everything we love about the Barossa."
A bone dry Rose in the classically Provencal style, elegant and complex. Finely aromatic and perfumed with high notes of both fresh and dried rose petals, chervil and pink grapefruit. Flavours mirror the aromatics and are fresh and delicate. Textural with a restrained roundness and fleshiness up front that draws out into a fine and focused finish with soft, yet fresh fruit acids.
The PUMPA is a blend of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Tempranillo varieties. Named as a tribute to Len PUMPA and his fellow Eden Valley Vignerons who pioneered and persisted in one of Australia’s most challenging but rewarding viticultural regions.
The KENNEDY is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Valley Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron’s who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the ‘soul’ of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass Vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo ‘Joe’ KENNEDY who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
Every Wednesday evening as the sun was setting, my family used to walk a well worn path across an empty paddock behind our house to our friends house for dinner. One night over a glass of wine, the property owner suggested we plant this bare land to vineyard so they didn't have to keep maintaining the area. At the turn of the century we planted on this site some varities that are new to the Barossa such as Primitivo, Tannat, Saperavi and Petit Sirah as well as some old favourites Mataro and Cinsaut.
For anyone who has ever met my business partner Mick Page and I, it would come as no surprise to learn that the idea for Teusner Wines was conceived at the pub over a few beers. Sitting at the bar, we’d been listening to a couple of old growers have a whine about the low, low prices being paid for their old vine Grenache…to the point they were going to rip out the vines and plant Chardonnay!
