Overview

The Riebke family 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.

“Some impressive richness in this bottling with unwaveringly ripe blackberries and plums, holding sway over the nose and palate. Great length and depth. Really fresh and bold style.” Score 92 points

Winery Tasting Notes

The Riebke tradition continues with the 2017 wine…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 of cinnamon, nutmeg and 5 spice. There’s a touch of mid palate sweetness, some mocha and black olive and the soft tannins are integrated seamlessly through the mid palate. We’ve taken it easy on the

oak to allow the rich dark fruit to take center stage. This is a plush, vibrant wine of immense generosity and, in my opinion incredible value. Thanks again to mother nature and the amazing Riebke family!”

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.
