Peter Teakle Wines launches new wines and tasting experiences
Raise your glasses because we have some exciting news to share!
2023 has proven to be a busy year already for us here on the hill at Peter Teakle Wines; with exciting changes at our restaurant and Cellar Door, and new additions to our range. Following the overwhelmingly positive response to our 2022 Estate Semillon and our first-ever Rosé, which was released last month, we are delighted to announce that we now have two additional wines joining our range - the 2019 Shiraz and the 2017 Merlot Cabernet. Both wines will be available at our Cellar Door and award-winning restaurant, Line & Label.
The addition of the two new drops symbolises an exciting new chapter in Peter Teakle Wines’ history, as we now boast a full estate range.
“It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come in such a short amount of time”, says chief winemaker Liz Heidenreich who joined Peter Teakle Wines’ back in December 2019.
“The Eyre Peninsula isn’t known for being a wine region, so we took a real gamble investing in the Eyre Peninsula’s first-ever wine crushing facility and experimenting with the area’s unique climate; then the pandemic was a major curveball; but we’ve really overcome so many obstacles to get here and I’m so proud of the quality of the products that we’ve achieved.”
“Here at Peter Teakle Wines we strongly believe it’s the combination of the perfect product and people that makes our wines stand out”, says TeakCorp’s Managing Director Ben Teakle.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Liz and what she and her team have achieved in only a few years, and are grateful for her passion, resilience, determination and willingness to experiment and take chances.”
Of the new wines Liz says, “The 2019 shiraz boasts aromas of blackberry and savoury notes of leather and cassis. It has a long finish, with a hint of pepper and earthy spice and is beautiful to drink and enjoy now, but can also be left with medium term cellaring to increase complexity.”
“The Merlot Cabernet is a famous blend from Bordeaux in the South of France and the two grape components compliment each other beautifully. The soft, juicy red berry fruits of the merlot sit perfectly alongside the more intense tannins of the cabernet. This one is perfect to enjoy now or to be left for short term cellaring, which will soften the tannins.”
The addition of the two wines means visitors can now choose between four Tasting Experiences at Peter Teakle Wines’ Cellar Door which are all priced at $8 per person.
