The Potter’s Merlot 2010

2010 The Potter’s Merlot


A wine dedicated to Samuel Hoffmann (1818-1900), a master potter, who settled on the Liebich property in 1848. Potter Hoffmann was one of the first German potters who emigrated to South Australia. He cleared an area between the current winery and the creek for farming and built a kiln nearby. Shards of his pottery can still be found in the yard today.

Vineyard: Rowland Flat, Barossa Valley

A premium single vineyard wine from 100% Merlot planted in 1989 by Ron Liebich. The 2010 vintage saw lower than average yield of 2 tonne/acre. Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing with no fining or filtration were employed for fuller flavour.

2010 Potters Merlot bottle
Taste Notes: Typical full-bodied Merlot this label is renowned for. Seductive mulberry and pomegranate flavours integrate with subtle oak tannins. Silky smooth palate that is ready to drink now with lovely natural acidity to pair with rich dishes. A complex medium-bodied wine in our premium range that will reward cellaring for up to five years.

15.0% Alc Vol

RRP: $25/bottle

Case: $270/12 bottles (save $30)


Previous Vintages: 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2008

Barossa Vintage Festival 2015

This is our favourite event on the wine tourism calendar. We love the way it showcases the Barossa as a whole be it food, wine, art, heritage or community spirit.

In the Barossa there are big plans and preparations for the upcoming festival held in the April school holidays.

The programme is getting back to its grass roots events, popular in the early years. We are happy to see this swing back to the good times of the past. The vineyards will be dotted with scarecrows, all the wineries will be presenting special feature events including ourselves with chocolate and fortifieds.

Liebichwein will again be sponsoring the grapetreading  and presenting our wines at Barossa Comes Home, a special event held after the Festival Parade at Tanunda Oval on Saturday April 18th 2015.

Early bookings are advised for ticketed events!
