Winter Warming Fortifieds and Chocolates
Sweet tooths were satisfied at this special event as part of the Barossa Seasons Winter 2018 events held on July 7th-8th.
Fortified winemaking is considered one of our specialties. Liebich family members have been grape growers and winemakers in the Barossa Valley for almost 100 years. We are extremely proud to be keeping Barossa and family traditions alive.
Over 70 people were served a set of Janet’s homemade chocolate truffles matched with the range of premium aged fortified varieties in four tasting sessions in the cosy barrel shed. Ron welcomed everyone and talked about his passion for fortified wines and about how the different flavour profiles and winemaking characteristics make each grape variety so special.
Wine and Chocolate pairings were:
Classic Frontignac – White chocolate spiced fruit and orange
Classic Muscat – Milk chocolate roasted almond, apricot and honey
Classic Semillon – Dark chocolate salted caramel ganache
Grand Tawny – Dark chocolate glazed fig and Rare Tawny
Congratulations to our social media competition winner Louise who won a pair of tickets to the event, and also to Cassie who won the draw for a bottle of Rare Semillon for signing up to our mailing list over the weekend.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we appreciate people getting out on a winter’s afternoon to relax in the Barossa.
