Chocolate and Wine Lovers Unite

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.

Barossa Gourmet Weekend 2015: Just Desserts @ Cellar Door

Sunday 16th August 2015

It was exciting to host another sell-out event as part of Barossa Gourmet Weekend. There really are a lot of sweet tooths around!

Over 40 Guests enjoyed an afternoon master class hosted by Ron Liebich and his daughter Briony who took them?behind the scenes of the world of fortified wine. Ron shared his tips for barrel ageing and how different grape varieties develop while Briony led the sensory experience of matching wines to indulgent desserts.

Matching Fortified with Desserts

Briony works as a Sensory Analyst and provided insights into basic taste interactions and why we love sweet flavours. The desserts were prepared by local chef Kate Harbison using as many local ingredients as possible. The most popular pairing was the Semillon and Cr?me Br?l?e.

Here are the wines and desserts served as complementary pairings:

Classic Semillon

Wine:?????????????????????????? Gorgeous burnt toffee, candied nuts and sticky date pudding flavours

Dessert:????????????????????? Honeycomb Cr?me Br?l?e with Blood Orange Marmalade

Classic Frontignac

Wine:?????????????????????????? Irresistible musk perfume and tropical fruits with caramelised flavours

Dessert:????????????????????? Sticky Walnut Tart with Peach Glaze

Classic Muscat

Wine:?????????????????????????? Alluring dried apricots, candied citrus and luscious honey flavours

Dessert:????????????????????? Dark Chocolate & Apricot Roulade

Grand Tawny

Wine:?????????????????????????? Extremely complex spicy fruitcake with a lingering dry, nutty finish.

Dessert:????????????????????? Chocolate Cream Layered Biscotti with Spiced Quince Jelly and Chocolate Glazed Fig

Thanks to everyone who attended and assisted with this true sweet indulgence!
