Teusner The Riebke Shiraz 2013

Inky dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice jammy black berries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins along with some acidity. This is a straight on middle of the road Aussie Shiraz. It’s not as fruit as some, and lacks pepper/spice on the finish, but is a smooth well made food friendly wine. The LCBO description of Full bodied and smooth is spot on. I would give it an 88 or so. Like most fruit driven wine this is made IMHO in more of a drink now style. I would expect after 5 years for little fruit to remain …

From the LCBO web site:
Teusner The Riebke Shiraz 2013 — VINTAGES#: 48470
STYLE – Full-bodied & Smooth
Six generations of the Riebke family have grown grapes in the Ebenezer district. Deeply coloured; resplendently mouthfilling, plum, blackberry and licorice tumble around each other on the medium to full-bodied palate; all this is good, but the quality of the tannins and acidity on the savoury finish is even better. Great value. Drink by: 2033. Score – 95. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, July 27, 2015) $23.95
