2015 Leveret Shiraz
$28.00 inc GST
An elegant Barossa Shiraz full of dark ripe berries, vanilla and chocolate flavours and finishing silky smooth.
A premium single vineyard wine from 100% Shiraz planted by Ron Liebich. Vines are hand-pruned and receive minimal irrigation. The vines grow on heavy black biscay soil at Rowland Flat on the eastern foothills of the Barossa.
This wine is named “Leveret”, the French term for a baby hare, which narrowly escape being run over by the tractor from row to row in the vineyard.
Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing and bottling without fining or filtration, all help to preserve the essence of fruit. Taste the full spectrum of dark berries typical of Barossa Shiraz. Maturation for 24 months in seasoned American and French oak has delivered a complex wine with sweet spices, chocolate and vanillin oak flavours. The oak tannins are well-softened and leave a silky finish.
A complex full-bodied wine in the Liebichwein range. Perfect for everyday drinking with a hearty meal or will reward long term cellaring 10-15 years.
