Leveret Shiraz 2012

2012 Leveret Shz bottle

The 2012 vintage is sold out as of June 2016. Fans of Shiraz might like to try the Ron’s Selection Old Vine Shiraz or The Darkie Shiraz, considered the ‘big brother’ of Leveret. 

Leveret is the term for a baby hare, which narrowly escapes being run over by the tractor from row to row.

A single vineyard Barossa Shiraz from the excellent 2012 vintage. Lovers of big Barossa Shiraz won’t be disappointed. A classic full bodied black inky Barossa shiraz grown on 22 year old vines in the eastern foothills of Rowland Flat, where heavier red brown black soils predominate.

Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing and bottling without fining or filtration, all help to preserve the essence of fruit. Maturation for 24 months in seasoned American and French oak has delivered a complex wine with intense dark berries balanced superbly with spiced vanillin oak flavours.

This wine was bottled in screw cap to immortalise the magnificent flavours beyond the life span of cork. It will reward cellaring for at least 10 years. We recommend serving with richly flavoured foods.

 

2012 Taste Notes: Black inky colour. Bouquet of bright red plums and vanilla spice.  Lush chocolate flavours coat the mouth like velvet with bold berry fruit length. A full bodied wine with subtle oak tannins and a palate that lingers.

Alc. Vol. 15.5%

RRP: $25.00/bottle
