Teusner 'The Independent' Shiraz Mataro 2012

This is a ripper! And a cool cat - I do rate the label.

Berry basket, the frozen berry packet type, this wine is bold and inky in appearance.

There's a little mint character with some savoury dried herbs, a perfect match for herb crusted lamb perhaps.

Quite giving and flavoursome, the wine continued to develop nicely in the glass.

Tasted blind beside wines of different varieties, vintage and price point, this stood out for all the right reasons.

A big thumbs up.
