Teusner, Avatar Grenache/Mataro/Shiraz 2020

RRP £25.50

Avatar is essentially the same wine as the one that started it all for Teusner, Joshua, which is unwooded and released a year younger. The bouquet here has a fascinating array of charry, smoky, cold ash aromas at first, revealing spices and berries the longer it’s exposed to air. The wine is rich and dense, full-bodied and concentrated, with lashings of supple tannins and a long carry augmented by some alcohol warmth. A luscious, full-flavoured, almost opulent blend.
