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 a 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 was regarded as the very best white Australian wines.

Palate: Bright with a salivating line of mineral acidity, balanced beautifully with just
enough residual sugar whilst not appearing obviously sweet. There is a waxy citrus
texture, complementing the clean apple blossom and grapefruit.
This wine will age gracefully for at least 10-15 years.

A small percentage of this wine was matured in vat, whilst the remainder was matured in
stainless steel on lees for 5 months before bottling to create a lovely waxy, soft textural
palate with impeccable length
