After a year or two off and many customer requests this fortified wine judging competition returns in Winter 2015. The competition is open to all home barrel owners Australia-wide. The competition started as part of Fortified Fest events where we celebrated Liebich family fortified winemaking traditions. Wines will be judged in a blind tasting by experienced palates.
Ron has always encouraged budding home blenders to bring in samples to cellar door get his expert advice on how to improve their blend to suit their personal preferences, be it Tawny, Muscat or Semillon or combining different varieties and ages.
Entries are due by 14th July and announced on 26th July at a special event in the Barrel Shed. All entrants receive tasting notes and comments on their blend.
