90% Shiraz & 10% Grenache
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"The Riebke family grow outstanding quality fruit on old, low yielding Barossa Valley vines…something they’ve been doing for six generations. For their faith in what we do and their assistance in the birth and growth of Teusner Wines, we’ll be forever thankful.
The Riebke tradition continues with the 2018 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 centre 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!"
91/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, December 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Teusner’s Riebke Shiraz is 10% grenache. It’s red berried, sweet, generous and soft. Red licorice territory, just tipping into kirsch. A mouthful of fruit flavour, you could say."

92/100 Natalie Maclean (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage of the Riebke is a blockbuster Barossa Shiraz produced by the Riebke brothers in the Ebenezer district of the Barossa Valley. The grapes grow on old, low yielding vines and the family has made wine for six generations. Kym Teusner is winemaker. Look for dark, ripe fruits, savoury spice on this full-bodied big red. This wine offers minty blackberry and toasty oak on the nose with a good grip on the palate. Barossa is Australia's heartland for Shiraz. This one offers great complexity and a long finish. Pair with prime rib."
