The Barossa Valley is home to the oldest and some of the finest Shiraz vineyards in the world. However, someone ‘up there’ must be really looking out for us Barossa winemakers, because right next door we have the Eden Valley, birth place of many of Australia’s supreme dry Rieslings. And if Shiraz is the big, rich and bold ‘king’ of the Barossa Valley, then surely Riesling must be the strong, sensual and desirable ‘empress’ of the Eden Valley.

"From the very strong 2021 Eden Valley vintage comes this textured, expansive offering from Teusner. Freshly squeezed lime juice, cut with floral flecks, almond paste and stone. The wine swells in the mouth, with pure limey fruit blossoming outwards, cut with mineral acidity and a faint tweak of phenolic pithiness. Stoney and dry, with a citrus blast on the finish." - 92 Points, James Halliday
