It’s the most exciting time of the year for our winemaker Ron.
Vintage finally arrived after a longer wait than usual in the Barossa Valley. The growing conditions in 2017 are shaping up to be perfect for even grape ripeness and maximising natural flavours.
In Liebichwein vineyards, the crops are average to just about average for all grape varieties. Overall fruit quality is above average for Vintage 2017 due to the milder summer and good rainfall before Christmas. Ron Liebich is pleased to report that it’s looking to be a fantastic year for fortified winemaking!
