The Riebke brothers have some of the best kept vineyards in the Ebenezer district and their family have grown outstanding quality fruit from old, low yielding vines for six successive generations. For their faith in what we do and their assistance in the birth and growth of Teusner Wines, we’ll be forever thankful.

Coming off the back of the amazing 2012 vintage, which produced some of the strongest Teusner wines we’d ever made, our fingers were crossed, hoping that mother nature would again deliver the goods in 2013.

Well, she delivered something alright...one of the driest winters and growing seasons in living memory. It would be an understatement to say the vineyards and the growers did it hard this time around...in fact some vineyards didn’t make Christmas so tough was the going. But the Riebkes have been around the block a few times when it comes to the grape growing game, and delivered some amazing quality fruit to the winery. Experience paid off big time!

Expert Reviews

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. Rating 95 - Drink by 2033, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUN/2014).

The hits just keep on coming for Teusner and its Riebke Shiraz.

Pure, warm-hearted, black-fruited Barossa red. Not much oak to speak of but a hefty serve of blackberried, coal-like, clovey fruit flavour. Chai crushed-spice complexity. Tight, chalky tannin. Pretty much bang on. Rating 90 - Drink by 2019, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (APR/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Note

The 2013 Riebke upholds the tradition… 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.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
