Barossa Valley

2021 Teusner Riebke Shiraz

6 x 750ml
Inky in appearance, opaque. Dark, brooding aromas of plum, mulberrry, chocolate, liqueured cherry and sweet spice. Powerful, darkly fruited and opulent in flavour. There’s real weight and force of fruit, but the savoury, drying tannins and bright acidity do a sterling job in maintaining balance and cut. – 8 OCTOBER 2023 Read more

Tasting Notes

Deep red/purple colour. Earthy, pepper and graphite aromas, hints of dried spices, the palate full-bodied and rich, well concentrated and powerful, with a core of deep, sweetly super-ripe black fruit flavour. The tannins quickly wash in and balance the opulence of the fruit. A big, generous, in-your-face shiraz with much to enjoy, now or for many years to come.

Winemakers Note

"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!”

KYM TEUSNER, WINEMAKER
