M's Wine Review - Teusner The Riebke shiraz 2010

Yum! Still a relatively young wine but packed full of luscious blackberry, plum, cherry and liquorice flavours! This shiraz is packed full of concentrated rich flavour and I don't think it would hurt to keep it for another 2-3 years to let it develop.  The nice ripe tannins come through without a hint of bitterness but could last and develop a little more.

The Riebke grapes are sourced from old Barossa vines around Ebenezer, Moppa and Kalimna. Kalimna is also one of the areas where Penfolds source some of their grapes for the Bin28 Kalimna Shiraz - another great wine.

I tried Teusner wines for the first time a couple of years ago. They're pretty good, different and a little bit more ‘adventurous’ making a few non-standard blends. I stocked up and there are a couple of different bottles resting in the wine rack - including a Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz blend so keep



Price range $18-$32
