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.

Spring in the Barossa Valley

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring in the Barossa is one of our favourite times of year. Everything is freshly renewed as vines take shape and form bushy leaf growth – a sight to behold.?Vineyards are looking so pretty with shades of green everywhere. Cover crops appear between vineyard rows and roses start to flower along the end of rows. The Barossa Ranges slowly change from bright green to yellowy brown as temperatures move from crisp chills to warm sunny days. It’s such a delicate time of year for grape growers and winemakers. Budburst kicks in and we watch conditions that help shape the quality of the fruit for next vintage.

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.

15.5 % Alc. Vol.

Vegan Friendly

RRP: $70 per bottle
