Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the..

Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by.. The bushranger's brew»

Teusner Riebke Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
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.

To make great wine you must have great fruit. Kym Teusner became inspired by the grand old vineyards of the Barossa Valley after taking charge of a venture to salvage ancient sites which had been planted to vines by his grandfather. The old and distinguished Riebke vineyards are located in the northern settlements of Ebenezer, Moppa and Kalimna, but Leon, Steve and Nick Riebke consistently produce some of the finest Shiraz to be found anywhere in the Barossa. After tending their vines for five generations, Riebke have a pretty good handle on their piece of dirt. Post fermentation the individual components are treated to a year's maturation in a selection of prior use French and American oak hogsheads.
Deeply coloured. Sweetly scented with lifted aromas of satsuma plum, black berries and cherry with some blueberry lift. Hints of liquorice, asian spice, kirsch and cola, sarsparilla and enticing violet. The palate is densely packed and bursting with dark fruits, kirsch and plum, liquorice, jasmine and a dose of Barossa earth. The concentrated, opulent fruit finishes long, dry and savoury over ripe, chalky tannins.
