Teusner Joshua Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2012
This is one for those who are not oak-lovers – in red or in white wines. Joshua is a wine with an incredibly vibrant fruitiness. The generous raspberry fruit is enhanced with pepper, perfumed floral notes and dried herbs.
Juicy, ripe soft fruit aside, there is a slight bite of acid on the back of the palate that will be tamed somewhat with food. The combination of generosity of fruit with the lack of oak makes this wine a good candidate for food with a spicy bent.
