Winery Tasting Notes


Pale green.


An exceptional year in Clare which has produced more florals instead of the typical citrus notes. There is citrus blossom, spring flowers and grated lemon zest.


The palate is intense with excellent fruit intensity. There's attractive lemon/lime splice notes with a distinct 'pretty' floral edge. A mineral core of natural acidity gives flavour and length to this wonderful example of classic Clare Riesling.

Food Matching

Ideal with salt and pepper squid.

Wine Background

Since the purchase of Chateau Leonay in 1945, Leo Buring has built an unparalleled reputation for quality Riesling production in both the Clare and Eden Valleys. Riesling expresses the nature of its growing conditions like no other varietal, earning its nickname as 'the naked grape'. The combination of climate, soil, aspect and location all add up to create discernibly different characters in Rieslings from each region.

Leo Buring traditionally produces Riesling from the Clare Valley and the Eden Valley. These wines share similar attributes, a clean fresh flavour and the ability to age, but possess their own individual characters.

Winery Profile

"Winemaking isn't a matter of life or death - it's much more important than that!" -Leo Buring 1876 - 1961.

Among the many personalities that have shape the Australian wine industry over the past 150 years one name stands pre-eminent - Leo Buring. Hermann Paul Leopold Buring was born in South Australia on the 7th October 1876, the son of German immigrants.

Acclaimed wine critic and judge, James Halliday, once described Leo Buring as, "the greatest maker of Rhine Riesling in Australia" and "Australia's foremost producer of Rieslings over a 30-year period."

Leo Buring has enjoyed a string of fine white winemakers at the helm. Oliver Crawford officially took over the Leo Buring winemaking responsibilities in the early 2000s, followed by Kim Schroeter. More recently, Peter Munro has returned from Marlborough, New Zealand to take over the helm - already with an acute eye for making unoaked white wines.

The goal of Leo Buring is a very simple one, to make the best Riesling in Australia. A sound definition of great Australian Riesling is a wine that has a profound depth of flavour combined with an elegant steeliness and fine acidity.

Leo Buring viticulturists have identified the best vineyards, and literally the best rows in those vineyards, within the Clare and Eden Valleys to source the perfect fruit for Leonay, the modern flagship of Leo Buring.
