Region Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is a cool and elevated sub-region of the Barossa situated in the Barossa Range to the east, overlooking the Barossa Valley. Low water availabilty, high altitude and strong winds make site selection in the region very important . The vineyeard soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock and are comprised mostly of red clay and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The Eden Valley is renowned for its floral talc scented Rieslings and vibrant fruit pure Shiraz. Cool climate Chardonnay also performs well as does Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Winery LEO BURING

Leo Buring Hermann Paul Leopold Buring (better known as Leo Buring) was born in 1876 in South Australia to German parents. In 1896 Leo was Dux of the Oenology course at Roseworthy Agricultural College, and in 1902, after studying at Geisenheim, Germany and Montpellier, France, he joined Penfolds Minchinbury Cellars near Mt Druitt in New South Wales. In 1931 Buring formed a business partnership with Reginald Mowat of Great Western called Leo Buring & Co. His first wine was made from grapes grown at his Emu Plains property in the early 1930s. However, he moved the major part of his wine operations to the Barossa Valley in South Australia in 1945.  John Vickery joined in 1953 and a golden period followed. During the 1960s and 1970s Leo Buring Rieslings were regarded as the very best white Australian wines. The brand fell under the radar in the intervening decades due to various corporate reshuffles, but is today once again on the ascendancy, making its name strictly as Riesling specialist

The Leo Buring Leonay DW Riesling is the top cuvee and is either an Eden Valley of Clare Riesling depending on which area delivers the best parcels of fruit in any given vintage. Leo Buring also produces a standard Clare Riesling and an Eden Valley Riesling both offering superb value for money.
