 Tasting Notes: 2015 Teusner "The Empress" Riesling

It's finely here ... and just in the nick of time ... there's nothing like the vibrancy of a cold glass of Eden Valley Riesling to beat the heat and put a smile on your face.

We've sourced the fruit for this wine from two separate parcels in the Eden Valley and weaved a bit of magic in the winery for each batch.

About 30% comes from a block near Keyneton about 400m above sea level. It's a warmer, early ripening site with a Westerly aspect that lies on a rich red loam studded with quartz. The Keyneton parcel is handled oxidatively and is fermented on solids to give the wine texture and shape.

The remaining 70% comes form the Southern Eden Valley just adjacent to the High Eden. Altitude here is also around 400m but it has an Easterly aspect, is cooler, later ripening and lies on sparse light coloured soils of siltstone and mica schist over clay. This parcel is handled reductively with a cool ferment giving the wine its heady perfume, drive and aromatic push.

So we hope you enjoy the inaugral release of the Teusner The Empress Riesling and raise a glass to the Queen of grape varieties.

Colour: Pale straw with green hues.

Palate: The 2015 The Empress Riesling shows great fruit purity on the palate with fresh, expressive “Bickfords” lime cordial characters along with grapefruit and lemon sorbet zing. After the initial pure citrus flavours the wine glides across the mid-palate with an energetic gait showing hints of crushed quartz, orange blossom, white flowers and talc with lighter nuances of lemon curd and clotted cream. The wine finishes with a well-defined, minerally line of acidity that shows great energy and spark as it guides the pure citrus and floral elements through to a persistent and dangerously moreish finish.
