Teusner 'The Riebke' Shiraz 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

*95 Points - James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion June 2014* The Riebke brothers have some of the best kept vineyards in the Ebenezer district. Their family have grown outstanding quality fruit from old, low yielding vines for six successive generations. This Shiraz embodies their efforts and our gratitude for their faith and assistance in the birth and growth of Teusner Wines. "Six generations of the Riebke family have grown grapes in the Ebenezer district. Deeply coloured; resplendently mouthfilling, plum, blackberry and licorice tumble around each other on the medium to full-bodied palate; all this is good, but the quality of the tannins and acidity on the savoury finish is even better. Great value." 95 Points - James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion June 2014

Teusner Wines came into being late in 2001 when Kym Teusner witnessed a conversation between his girlfriend’s uncle and his brother. They were discussing the viability of an old Grenache vineyard, planted in the Northern Barossa Valley by their grandfather. The low yields and low prices being paid by the ‘Big Boys’ meant that the vineyard was running at a loss and was facing certain destruction! Kym was loath to hear this and approached his brother in law, now business partner, to see if they could scratch together enough cash to keep these gnarled old vines in the ground. In that first year they raised enough capital for only about a quarter of the fruit from that vineyard, but this was enough for the Riebke brothers to stall their plans for these precious old vines. They were aware of a few other old blocks that fruit could be sourced from, if required, and made the first release with 165 cases of 2002 Joshua. In addition to this about 8 hogsheads of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz was put aside, destined to be released around 24 months later as Avatar. Our philosophy is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit that we source from old, well maintained vineyards. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which we guide, with minimal inputs, into wine. Our fruit sources are predominantly family and close friends, which allows us this selectivity in which fruit we vinify Read less
