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.

2012 Leveret Shz bottle

Barossa Vintage Festival 2019

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the traditions of the long-running Barosa Vintage Festival were celebrated in April 2019. We had a ball celebrating a century of Liebich family winemaking heritage in the Barossa Valley. Winemaking is in Ron’s blood starting with his Grandfather, Benno Liebich, who established a family winery in Rowland Flat in 1919.

The cricket theme for the float was selected given that between Ron, his Uncle “Darkie” and grandfather Benno they had notched up 100 vintages not out. We rolled out the turf on the back of a truck, set up stumps, donned the whites and rolled the arm over.
