2013 - 2014 - 2015
Riesling Trio 6 Pack
A unique opportunity to compare how the seasons change and affect the flavour of wine. Our Vertical Tasting Riesling Trio 6 Pack includes x2 bottles from our 2013, 2014 and 2015 vintages.
The 2013 and 2015 allow you to compare traditional characteristics of Riesling from the Eden Valley, as the vintage conditions from these years were typical. Comparing these 2 vintages allows you the unique opportunity to taste how Riesling ages, and why we believe more people should take the time to enjoy aged Rieslings. The 2014 shows how heat spikes at the end of ripening added a floral characteristic to the wine, not often shown in fruit from the cooler climate of Eden Valley.
Our winemaker Jo Irvine has skilfuly crafted our Riesling to be an example of the very best that the Eden Valley can offer.

Our “Thistle & Burr” Riesling is made from our estate grown single site vineyard in Keyneton, part of the Eden Valley wine region. The vines were planted over 40 years ago in an area of sandy loam soil over gravel with bedrock and clay patches. The Eden Valley is renowned for producing outstanding Riesling, arguably the best in Australia, with exceptional potential for aging.
We have named our wines after our ancestor Heinrich Fiebiger, and the many roles he undertook in the formative years of settlement in the region. Our “Thistle & Burr” Riesling is named after his position in 1873 of Thistle & Burr Inspector. Our family have remained in Keyneton, part of the Eden Valley wine region for over 150 years.
This is an outstanding opportunity to compare how the seasons effect the same vineyard and fruit that makes the wine. The 2013 and 2015 vintages are comparable for their typical slow ripening conditions for the Eden Valley region. Comparing these vintages allows you to explore how Riesling ages and develops its luscious full bodied mouth feel and depth of flavour. The 2014 vintage with its heat spikes during ripening produced a floral aromatic quite distinctively different to the classic lemon lime characteristics of the other vintages.
Our winemaker Jo Irvine is renowned for her skills in making Riesling, even winning an international Riesling challenge. Her finesse and skill in making our Riesling ensures it is clean and pure in flavour, with the right acid balance. Our fruit is handled delicately with no skin contact before crushing and pressing. After cool slow in-tank fermentation the wine is bottled within 6 weeks of harvest to capture aromatics. Our Riesling has been made for exceptional aging potential.
Elegant lemon lime flavours and aromas are intermingled with a racy acidity and lingering length of flavour. This wine is crafted to be enjoyed now or aged and savoured in the future.
Our Riesling is brought alive with a natural oysters with a squeeze of lemon juice, fresh from the waters of South Australia.
