There has been quite a tradition by now to fashion GSMs in Australia. The winemakers have managed to understand the contribution of each grape variety and create quite seamless blends. So it is with the 2014 Teusner Avatar.
The Grenache contributes upfront raspberry flavours, the Shiraz sweet black fruit and a harmonious mouthfeel, and the Mourvedre firm tannins.
This wine is quite fresh and delicious in the beginning, but by the second glass it starts to get heavy, with the 14.5% alcohol weighing in. The wine has a good length finish.
