Rare Tawny was crowned Best Museum Red Fortified. Last year saw Rare Semillon get a similar honour in the Best Museum White Fortified Class.

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.

A very old and very special fortified wine to uphold our family Barossa traditions!
This rare Semillon was sourced from 20 year old barrels started with a small amount of wine from Ron’s Grandfather Benno Liebich’s 80 year old barrel. All Liebichwein fortified wines are made from grapes grown on the property in the southern end of Barossa Valley.
Liebich Rare Semillon?is released specially for Liebichwein’s 25th Anniversary. An exquisite aged fortified in extremely limited quantity of 300 bottles that are specially printed with gold ink with a cork stopper and wax seal.
Proud winner of a gold medal and trophy at the 2017 Barossa Wine Show for Best Museum White Fortified.
Simply magical liquid gold! Gorgeous rich and complex nose capturing the essence of fruit cake and burnt toffee. The palate clearly shows wonderfully developed aged flavours and great intensity. A super smooth and syrupy mouthful carries the explosion of nutty and toffee richness. It all ends with a luscious sweetness and lingering persistence.
$70 per 375mL bottle
