Liebich Leveret Shiraz 2015

What is a Leveret you may ask?

It is the French term for a baby hare, which narrowly escapes being run over by the tractor from row to row. Ron chose the name back in 1999 after seeing our Cairn Terrier chase many a hare amongst the vines.

We are proud to present the 2015 Leveret Shiraz. Lovers of rich and juicy Barossa Shiraz won’t be disappointed.

This single vineyard Barossa Shiraz was grown on 25 year old vines in the eastern foothills of Rowland Flat, where heavier red brown black soils predominate. The 2015 vintage was excellent yielding perfectly ripened fruit which produced a full-flavour, well-balanced and elegant style red.

Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing and bottling without fining or filtration, all help to preserve the essence of fruit. Maturation for 24 months in seasoned American and French oak has delivered a complex wine with fruit-forward flavours, subtle oak influence and well-integrated tannins.

Enjoy now and for at least 10 years, particularly with red meats and richly flavoured foods. This wine was bottled in screw cap to immortalise the magnificent flavours beyond the life span of cork.

2012 Leveret Shz bottle

Recipe: Caramelised Onion, Fig, Rosemary and Wine Sauce

Caramelised Onion, Fig, Rosemary and Wine Sauce

This quick and versatile sauce is more like a savoury compote. Excellent condiment for using figs, especially when you have had enough of sweet fig-based desserts. Serve as a sauce with roast lamb, baked fish, on pizza bases or like a relish. It’s just as good made with a full bodied red wine or Port style wine.

Prep 10 mins ∙ Cook 25 mins 

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp olive oil

500g brown onions, sliced thinly

1 cup fresh figs or ½ cup dried figs

¼ cup wine (Liebichwein red wine or Tawny Port)

1 cup stock (chicken or vegetable)

1 tbsp Liebichwein Muscat Vinegar (balsamic vinegar can be substituted)

1 tbsp chopped rosemary or thyme (fresh or dried)

Salt & Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Prepare sliced onions and cut figs into quarters if using fresh figs.

Heat olive oil in large frying pan. Add onions and sprinkle some salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden, about 20 minutes.

Stir in figs, wine, stock, vinegar and herbs. Increase heat to high and simmer until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.

Add salt and pepper taste.

Store in a sealed container in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Alternatively, freeze in small portions until ready to use.

Enjoy!
