The Potter’s Merlot 2010

2010 The Potter’s Merlot


A wine dedicated to Samuel Hoffmann (1818-1900), a master potter, who settled on the Liebich property in 1848. Potter Hoffmann was one of the first German potters who emigrated to South Australia. He cleared an area between the current winery and the creek for farming and built a kiln nearby. Shards of his pottery can still be found in the yard today.

Vineyard: Rowland Flat, Barossa Valley

A premium single vineyard wine from 100% Merlot planted in 1989 by Ron Liebich. The 2010 vintage saw lower than average yield of 2 tonne/acre. Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing with no fining or filtration were employed for fuller flavour.
