SPECIALTY // Estate Grown
A small vineyard producing award-winning wines in an emerging wine region for South Australia.
Peter Teakle Wines is currently producing Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet – the 2017 Estate Riesling was awarded 94 points in the Halliday 2019 Wine Companion. With this first release receiving a Halliday “gold”, the 2019 Estate Riesling is highly anticipated.
The vineyard has recently doubled in size with plans to plant an additional four grape varieties. The multi-million-dollar winery under construction will crush 150 tonnes of fruit for Peter Teakle Wines. The location of the new cellar door will allow visitors to look into the winery facility as well as outside to the vineyard where the fruit was grown, while tasting the wines.
Chief winemaker Liz Heidenreich brings years of experience from the Clare Valley to help Peter and his vineyard team develop premium fruit that will ultimately become award-winning wines.
