The Riesling vineyard is located at the southern end of the Eden Valley at an elevation of approximately 470 metres. The soil is gravel and sandy loam over stone/clay subsoil with a gently sloping northerly aspect. The vineyard is hand-pruned and hand-picked with limited watering, producing crops of 2 tonne per acre.

Free run juice from whole bunch pressing is lightly cold settled then racked & separated into 2 components. One component undergoes a cool fermentation in stainless steel tank. The other portion undergoes a wild fermentation in seasoned french oak. Following primary fermentation, the tank component rests on its lees. The barrels remain on lees and are stirred periodically over 6 months. The wines are racked, blended and stabilised just prior to bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale lemon in colour.


Lifted aromatics of green apple and lemon/lime characters leap from the glass.


The palate displays pristine apple and citrus fruit character. Showing great poise and purity, a crisp thread of acid keeps the wine focused and romotes wonderful palate length. A subtle textural backdrop from the barrel fermentation component aged sur lie adds a further layer of interest that sets this wine apart from the typical dry Australian Riesling style.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Cooper Burns is a winemaking partnership of Mark Cooper & Russell Burns, dedicated to producing tiny amounts of handcrafted, small batch, artisan wines from the Barossa Valley. We aim to make wines with soul, individuality and personality that express the qualities of the vineyard, vintage and passion that went in to making the wines.Mark & Russell met during vintage 2003 in California, where, being like-minded individuals, they struck up an immediate friendship. As the days and weeks of a Californian summer and fall went by, it become apparent that Mark & Russell had similar dreams for making their own handcrafted wine. A night of margaritas and tequila in Paso Robles saw the basic framework for Cooper Burns take shape. Details of that night remain hazy, but essentially revolved around low yielding super premium fruit from the Barossa Valley, traditional winemaking methods with minimal intervention and attention to detail, and a belief in what they wanted to do and achieve with the wines. After reaching an accord with their partners, Rachel & Tracy, (lots of begging, pleading, promises and a tantrum or two was required to reach this accord, mind you), it came to pass that Cooper Burns was up and running for vintage 2004.
