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.

The Lofty Cabernet Sauvignon – Museum Release

06 Lofty

The Lofty Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon

Single vineyard wine sourced from the old 40 acre block, planted by Clarence Walter “Darkie” Liebich in 1969. Dead arm affliction reduces yield but enhances flavour as does the use of hand-pruning and minimal irrigation.  The vines grow on heavy black biscay soil at Rowland Flat on the eastern foothills of the Barossa.

This wine of great quality and character is dedicated to Ron’s father, “Lofty” (Lesley Alwyn) Liebich (1916-1953) who was a man with high ideals. Produced in special vintages since 1992 when the cellar door was established.

Special museum stock 2006 vintage is currently available – a very good growing season resulting in an extremely low yield of 1 tonne per acre. Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing with no fining or filtration were employed for fuller flavour.

A rich and enticing wine exhibiting violet and spiced blackberry fruit nuances perfectly balanced with the subtle oak after maturation for over five years in various aged French oak barrels. Super concentrated flavours and ultra silky tannins. Exceptional drinking now, but will reward patience with bottle maturation for another 10 years at least.

15.5 % Alc. Vol.

Retail $48 per bottle.
