Teusner Winery under the helm of Kym Teusner, former Torbreck winemaker and Michael Page is one of the most exciting and quality focused boutique winery operations in Australia. Here people and the fruit are king.
This Riesling is super fresh and crisp, Eden Valley in a nutshell. Initial zippy acidity gives way to flavours of slate and white florals with a developed mouthfeel. Enjoy it right away!
Awards and Accolades
2016 Vintage: 95 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "The naked lady on the front label with a snake's head disconcertingly placed in front of her left nipple doubtless portrays the 'strongly sensual desirable' summary of the back label, which in turn accurately describes this lovely lime-accented wine from a tip top vintage - Eden Valley to the core."
2015 Vintage: 92 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front "Teusner seem to make a more approachable style, perhaps ready to go for youthful pleasure. Lemon barley, green pear and juicy lime with a slight baby oil perfume. Good burst of lime flavour with a light chalkiness and some savoury sorts of flavours in play. Some crunch and mouthwatering acidity on the finish. Easy to get through a few glasses of this."
From the Winery
Our two major sources of Riesling are from vineyards near Angaston (dry grown, 390 meters) and Springton (450 meters +). We handle our Riesling in the winery a little different to most, with the juice pressed off oxidatively and fermented with some solids at cool temperatures in the pursuit of added flavour and texture.
We’re not necessarily trying to make a Riesling built to last an eternity, preferring to see a bit more flesh on the bones which makes for a far more enjoyable drink as a young wine. Our Riesling shows great fruit purity, and once your palate negotiates the initial pure citrus flavours, the wine glides across the mid-palate with an energetic gait showing hints of mineral ‘wet slate’, orange blossom, white flowers and talc.
