Old Vine Shiraz is produced from predominantly low yielding 48 year old vines growing in the southern end of Barossa Valley. Maturation for three years in old French barriques delivers a well-rounded flavoursome wine not overwhelmed by oaky characteristics. Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing and bottling without fining or filtration, all help to preserve the essence of fruit.
Intensely ripe offering plum and pepper flavours, excellent fruit length, and richly textured palate in complete harmony with the oak.
Ron’s Selection label wines are from a series of small batch wines produced when winemaker, Ron Liebich, has the opportunity to make use of different grape varieties or fruit parcels from different vineyards. Old Vine Shiraz is an ever popular wine when it is part of the Liebichwein range.
Taste Notes: A full-bodied Shiraz full of dark plum, cherry and pepper flavours with a richly textured palate and excellent fruit length. Perfect for everyday drinking with a hearty meal or will reward long term cellaring 10-15 years.
