Teusner Shiraz The Riebke 2017 - Wine

Tasting Notes

The Riebke Shiraz is all about old vine fruit from the Northern Barossa which has incredible purity and freshness combined with length and enveloping tannins.

Production Notes

The grapes were open fermented and received lots of oxygen from two daily manual pump overs, softening the wine. The yeasts were carefully monitored and the wine remained on its skins for five days. No pre or post-macerations took place. Fermentation lasted for five days in stainless steel; it was then pressed through both a basket press and a pneumatic slotted screen press, providing yet more oxygen. The wine was then finished in tank or barrel depending on the parcel. The oak used was all old oak barrels of between three to 15 years old, for a period of 12 months. The wine was racked off and bottled, without fining or filtration.

Critics Reviews

James Suckling.com 92pts (2017) - 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.

Producer Profile

Established by Kym Teusner and Michael Page in 2001, Teusner’s philosophy is to produce only exceptional, affordable wines by being very selective about the fruit, which is sourced from old, well maintained vineyards in Barossa. These vineyards reliably produce balanced, complex fruit which are guided, with minimal input, into stunning wines. Kym decided to make the Righteous Shiraz because he wanted to showcase his own expression of what he considers the ultimate Barossa Valley Shiraz style...intense, powerful and long-lived.
