92/100 James Halliday (2014)
90/100 Huon Hooke (2014)
90/100 Jeremy Oliver (2014)
James Halliday - "...deeply coloured and unashamedly full bodied, gritty tannins standing guard over wild blackberry fruit" (2014)
Huon Hooke - "...gritty tannins in abundance and a fairly rustic feel." (2014)
Jeremy Oliver - "A smooth, polished early-drinking shiraz of regional charm and freshness. Vivacious aromas of cassis raspberries and blueberries are backed by a hint of dusty oak and lifted by a whiff of cracked pepper. Its long, brightly lit palate of vibrant berry fruit and chocolate/vanilla oak is gently supported by fine tannin, finishing with soft acids and lingering nuances of blackberry and mocha." (2014)
The Riebke family grow outstanding quality fruit on old, low yielding Barossa Valley vines…something they’ve been doing for six generations. For their faith in what we do and their assistance in the birth and growth of Teusner Wines, we’ll be forever thankful.
The Winemaker "The Riebke tradition continues…rich, abundant flavour and serious drinkability whilst also being easy on the pocket. The wine is jam packed with Barossa Shiraz This is a plush, vibrant wine of immense generosity and incredible value."
Teusnér's "The Riebke" Shiraz has been praised by both the wine press and wine drinkers in recent years for consistently over-delivering on quality at an unbeatable price. The wine's name is a tip of the hat to the Riebke family, who produce some of the best grapes in the Ebenezer district. Teusner take a lot of fruit from the old Riebke vineyards in north Barossa around Ebenezer, Kalimna and Moppa.
The Barossa Valley is an extremely important wine-producing region within the Barossa zone of South Australia, particularly associated with powerful red wines from the red wine grape variety Shiraz. A prestigious and internationally renowned region, it is not only home to some of the oldest vineyards and wineries in Australia but produces some of its most recognizable and sought-after brands. The region lies in the (very flat) 'Valley' created by the North Para river, which connects the main towns of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Lyndoch.
