Tempranillo & Petit Verdot | Barossa Valley

TEMPT is a red blend that was released a few times in the history of Liebichwein when the fruit was available. The wine is a unique blend of Tempranillo, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Tempranillo and Petit Verdot grapes have been planted on the Liebich property since 2000. The fruit grows in heavy red/black soils on the southern foothills of the Barossa Ranges. The Petit Verdot and Tempranillo vines are some of the oldest in the Barossa Valley region. Merlot came from mature vines over 20 years old.

Traditional techniques of hand plunging, basket-pressing and bottling without fining or filtration, all help to preserve the essence of fruit. All Liebich reds are vegan-friendly due to no fining. Older vintages are very low in sulfites as any initial sulfur dioxide has been used up over an extended time in bottle.

These wines were bottled under screwcap to immortalise the magnificent flavours beyond the life span of cork. Only small batches were made from select vintages over the years. Less than 2 dozen of each vintage remain from a stash of bottles that have been stored in cellar conditions.

The Whole Shebang Red Blend

This red blend brings “The Whole Shebang” to the table from the Liebich vineyard.?The first release was so popular that Ron had no choice but to get back to the blending bench.

Ron has spent many hours perfecting this blend of younger and older wines from five varieties all grown on the Liebich property including Merlot, Tempranillo and Pinot Noir. All blending wines were basket-pressed and unfiltered to retain concentrated flavours.

A sensational value non-vintage red blend that won’t last long in anyone’s cellar.


Taste Notes: The nose is full of dark berries with well balanced spicy oak from older blend components. The palate is elegantly smooth and easy drinking with some refreshing sour cherry flavours.
