The Kyara estate vineyard is situated in Keyneton part of the Eden Valley wine region. Known as the Barossa’s high country, the wine produced in this area is renowned for wonderful aromatics, elegance and complexity. The rugged beauty of the hilly terrain and ancient giant gumtrees surround our vineyard. Our vines grown in soil well suited to dryland viticulture, with its sandy loam over gravel, rock and clay patches.
After arriving in the Eden Valley region in 1861, our ancestor Heinrich Fiebiger was one of the founding men who petitioned the South Australian Governor to for a local council. Over 150 years later our family still thrive and live off the land in this area. After taking on the vineyard in 2012 we decided to dedicate the wines after the many roles Heinrich undertook during the formative years of establishing a community.
The 2013 vintage was harvested with Riesling starting on 25th February, and our Cabernet finishing on 26th March. After a dry growing season in spring and summer it was an early vintage. While the season was dry thankfully temperatures were moderate, with rainfall arriving at just the right times for the vines. Our vines benefited with the extra love and care we gave them the prior year after taking on the vineyard. We took care to hand-pick this vintage.
With 2013 being the first vintage for Kyara, our winemaker Jo Irvine shows off her skill in understanding fruit from the Eden Valley and
matching oak perfectly to our red varieties. She takes great care and detail in ensuring our fruit expresses our vineyard and the season it came from.
The wines from our 2013 vintage represent the characteristics that the Eden Valley is renowned for. Our “Thistle & Burr” Riesling is elegant with lemon lime flavours and aromas with a lingering length of flavour. Our “Bush Lawyer” Shiraz shows off dark berry fruits and
plum flavours with a soft tannin structure resulting in an elegant wine of great complexity and balance. Our “Justice of the Peace” Cabernet Sauvignon shows a combination of mulberry and briary fruit flavours of many layers which is supported by a firm, textured tannin finish which lingers and persists.
