View details Teusner The Riebke Shiraz 2015
$ 18.99 Teusner The Riebke Shiraz 2015
Shiraz / Barossa / SouthAustralia
The initial release of Riebke Ebenezer was conceived during an economic decline in Barossa Valley. The Riebke family were being paid very little for their Shiraz and asked Teusner if he was on the market for quality fruit. Teusner agreed to produce a wine but made no promises, as they hadn't even seen the harvest. The epiphany occurred as soon as fermentations began and the winemakers knew that they had come across something very special indeed. A tip of the hat to the Riebke brothers, whose vineyards play the essential role in the wines of Teusner.

Mouverdre Mataro / Barossa / SouthAustralia
In the wonderful wide world of wine, you will find over sixty aliases for Mataro. Mourvedre from the Côtes du Rhône and the Spanish Monastrell are amongst the most familiar, as well as lesser known pseudonyms such as Balzac and Esparte. Custodians of the finest parcels of Barossa Mataro, the house of Teusner are Australia's most accomplished purveyors of this complex and engaging, esoteric varietal. Teusner's favourite by far is the French construct known as estrangle chien, the dog strangler, due to its bestial tannins.

$ 29.99 Teusner Avatar Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2015
Available in cartons of six
Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre / Barossa / SouthAustralia
Half Grenache with the balance of Shiraz and Mourvedre, grown to some fantastic old vine stock, most are a century of age, treated to a spell in well seasoned barrels. The oak influence is minimal, serving to complex and mature the wine rather than to impart flavour. So marked must be the profile of fruit to make the cut for Avatar, that initial classification of the components takes place immediately after vintage. Well balanced and round, a wine of earthy, savoury complexity, displaying ripe fleshy fruits, bramble and licorice spice.

Albert is the namesake of Teusner's grandfather, commemorated for his tireless hard work and commitment.

Pure and expressive, displaying the power, elegance and generosity of splendid old vines Shiraz, Albert is a joy to drink now and will continue to evolve magical Barossa richness.
 
Teusner Wines is an artisanal, youthful expression of revered old Barossa vines, brought into focus by the efforts of devoted growers and the skills of the winemaker

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.

Kym Teusner is an enthusiastic winemaker, a graduate from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Science (Oenology Major). He was always focused upon returning to the Barossa and experimenting with Rhone varieties that grow so well there. Once finished his studies, this drive led him to work with several high profile producers of Rhone style wines whilst working on the launch of his own label.

Viticulturalist Michael Page grew up on his family vineyard in the south Australian Riverland town of Barmera. In his early 20s he purchased his own 30 acre plot of old vines and consistently produced fruit worthy of top bonuses. The 1990s took their toll on this venture, and when growers started getting paid for their fruit in brandy spirit Michael decided it was time to look to greener pastures. He began developing vineyards for other people which led him to settle in the Barossa Valley.

The philosophy at Teusner is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit sourced from old, well maintained vineyards. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which is handled, with minimal inputs, into wine. The sources are predominantly family and close friends, which allows great selectivity in which fruit is ultimately vinified.

"Like an inquisitive walk into a dark and cool cellar with a little dusty oak in the air, then deeper again there are loads of beautifully weighted dark fruits in the core of the wine, some garden herbs around the edges and long lasting pleasure all over!" -(Albert Shiraz) The Advertiser, "The Teusner philosophy is to showcase the Barossa Valley in wines that are first and foremost affordable. The Riebke is the one that most clearly shows this promise. The fruit is sourced from Ebenezer and it has spent time in old oak hogsheads so that the fruit shines without distraction. It’s a delicious, plush, juicy shiraz at a ridiculous price!" -Riebke Shiraz (Brisbane News), "This is a joyous Shiraz with its subtle and vibrant fruit notes of plums and red berries on the nose, lightly spiced, fruit....cakey too with hints of chocolate and cedary notes alongside a plush mid-palate, ripe and voluptuous with giving tannins but nothing heavy-handed as it glides on to an excellent,long finish...mmmmm!" -Riebke Shiraz (The Age)

"Spicy, seductive and alluring, she goes by no other name than grenache. With her favourite dance partner mataro, they tear up the night. The backbone of shiraz cutting in at the end. Thats the label of this rose thats full of tangy, juicy fruit fragrant with rose petal and rhubarb notes, some creaminess and sweet fruit on the palate before finishing dry with crisp acidity!" -Salsa Rose (The Age)
