Winery Tasting Notes

The Vickery Watervale Riesling is a classic example of this wine style. Bright vivacious colour, lifted aromatics with intense fruit flavours on the middle palate. Fresh lime acidity completes a long and persistent finish.

Colour: Pale straw with slight green hues.

Aroma: Prominent Watervale aromas of lime leaf and lemon curd. Hints of ginger with floral notes, rose and ocean spray.

Palate: Crisp acid with a chalky texture, smooth midpalate fruit

sweetness with some grassy notes on the finish. Lime and lemon sorbet, hints of nutmeg and spice, good

intensity, juicy and buoyant.

Food Match: Vietnamese chicken, roasted coconut, peanuts and lime.

Cellaring: As with all Vickery Rieslings, this wine will be bright and fresh in its youth and will reward careful cellaring for 7 - 10 years.

ts of mineral ‘wet slate’, orange blossom, white flowers and talc.

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.
