“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 Riebke tradition continues…rich, abundant flavour and serious drinkability whilst also being easy on the pocket. The wine is jam packed with Barossa Shiraz flavours….plums, black fruits and warm spices. We’ve taken it easy on the oak to allow the fruit to take center stage…as you would when it’s this good. This is a plush, vibrant wine of immense generosity and incredible value.
Thanks again to mother nature and the amazing Riebke family!”

“From the sixth-generation Riebke growers, deeply coloured and unashamedly full bodied, gritty tannins standing guard over wild blackberry fruit. A degree of patience is absolutely essential, but will be rewarded thanks to the overall balance of the wine.”

“The wine is full-bodied and firm with gritty tannins in abundance and a fairly rustic feel. It demands a little time and patience. The concentration is there, and the potential to soften into a nice bottle of red.”

“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.”
