2004 The Lofty
- Special museum release
- 100% Barossa Cabernet from single vineyard old vines
- Excellent vintage 2004 (the winemaker’s favourite vintage this decade)
- Elegant Barossa red that has aged superbly
A premium single vineyard wine from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 1969 by Clarence Walter “Darkie” Liebich.
The wine is named after the winemaker’s father who was a rather tall bloke with high ideals. This wine of great quality and character is dedicated to his honour.
Traditionally hand plunged, basket pressed, and unfiltered to retain natural fruit characters. Maturation for 24 months in various aged French vosques and nevers oak barrels has perfectly balanced the seductive fruit and produced a complex wine.
The wine exhibits deep dark violet, blackberry fruit nuances intensified and enhanced by the extremely low yield of 1 tonne per acre, in a very good growing season. Soft wood tannins integrate with the fruit from nose to palate. A complex full-bodied wine in the Liebichwein premium range.
Exceptional drinking now.
