Riebke Shiraz 2008 “effortless drinkability” and 92 points.
The Riebke Shiraz from Teusner in the Barossa has lots of fans. Here’s an interesting review of the 2008 from Winefront Monthly: “Pity that this can no longer be labelled ‘Ebenezer’ – thanks to the blinkered thinking of some of the big wine companies; it’ll turn out to be a small victory over one of their neighbours in a global war that they’ll lose. Promotion of sub-regionality helps everyone; snuffing it out hinders everyone. If you liked the 2007 you will certainly like this. It’s thick with flavour. It tastes raspberried, meaty, coal-like and fragrant, and it manages to combine serious dark flavour and shape with effortless drinkability. Excellent length too. Maybe a touch on the sweet side but hey, it tastes gorgeous. 92 Points. ” Campbell Mattinson Winefront Monthly.
