Leo Buring was one of the early pioneers of the Australian wine industry. The son of German immigrants, Leo was born in South Australia in 1876. After completing an Oenology course at Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1896, he then gained practical experience in Europe before returning to Australia in 1902 to work at Michinbury. A highly skilled winemaker, Leo was often described as “Australia’s Ambassador for Wine” because he was one of the first to export Australian wines as far back as the early 1900’s.
Leo finally achieved his dream at the age of 68 when he bought the Orange Grove Winery at Tanunda, in the Barossa Valley, which he re-named, ‘Chateau Leonay’. Since this time the label Leo Buring has established an international reputation as one of Australia’s leading Riesling producers.
The 2005 vintage is shaping up to be the best since the legendary 2002 for Riesling in the Clare and Eden Valley regions. This is a baby Riesling that will blossom superbly with time. Brilliant straw colour with green overlay. The nose delivers classic Riesling intensity, with aromatic lift of lime, orange blossom and ripe mandarin. The palate is consistent with the nose. Flavours of lime and lemon, with the lemon component being dominant. Crisp acid backbone. Long aftertaste of lime and lemon.
Cellar 4-5 years (2009-2010)
Fragrant lime blossom and spice; vibrant, fresh and intense lime and lemon fruit; crisp finish; overall finesse and delicacy.
