The Darkie Shiraz 2009 – Museum Release

Special museum release of a classic full-bodied 100% Barossa Shiraz from low yielding old vines.

Liebichwein’s flagship red wine dedicated to Ron’s uncle Clarence Walter “Darkie” Liebich (1920-1988) who encouraged Ron’s winemaking abilities. Uncle “Darkie” planted the 40 acre block on heavy biscay soil on the eastern foothills of the Barossa Ranges in 1969. The vines receive minimal attention and allow nature to do the work. Dead arm affliction reduces yield but enhances flavour as does the use of hand-pruning and minimal irrigation.

Vintage 2009 was a very good season with low yield of 1.5 tonne/acre. Traditional techniques of hand plunging and basket-pressing with no fining or filtration all enhance flavour and regional fruit characteristics. A unique wine having ages at least five years in various aged American and French hogsheads, producing a multi-layered wine.

Taste Notes: A rich aroma of black cherries and chocolate mingled with sweet spiced vanilla. Amazingly complex concentrated flavours linger long after the first sip. All this is perfectly balanced with the subtle oak maturation and super silky tannins. Exceptional drinking now, but even better with bottle maturation 10 years and beyond.
