Beautiful Barossa in Winter

A magical spot where you feel on top of the world.

This view is high up in the Barossa Ranges between Steingarten Road and Trial Hill Road. The ‘Steingarten’ (meaning stone garden) vineyard was planted in the 1960’s by the Gramp family who were inspired by the narrow vineyards planted on stoney ground in areas of Northern Germany.

To see for yourself, ask in cellar door for directions and you’ll be blown away (quite literally in winter) in only a few minutes drive from our cellar door.

Our backyard is stunning during winter!

Barossa Wine Show Trophy Win

We’re absolutely thrilled with results from the Barossa Wine Show 2018. Ron has outdone himself picking up a Trophy for Museum Fortified for the second year in a row. Rare Tawny was crowned Best Museum Red Fortified. Last year saw Rare Semillon get a similar honour in the Best Museum White Fortified Class.

Other Liebichwein medal winners:

  • Rare Frontignac = SILVER (yet to be released)
  • 2018 Vintage Fortified Petit Verdot (baby VP – yet to be released) = BRONZE
  • Classic Muscat = BRONZE
  • Lovely Sparkling Pinot Noir NV = BRONZE

 

 

Wine Bar at Eyre Peninsula Field Days

 

Eyre Peninsula Field Days?entice to head west every two years for a huge 3 day event in August. We make sure that we’re stocked with plenty of wine including a pallet tank of Ron’s Blend Tawny to sell by the litre.

The tasting bar serves a range of Liebichwein reds and fortifieds in the Food and Lifestyle area.

It?s fantastic to return each year and see our regular customers and meet new ones and to give them a taste of the Barossa Valley.

Barossa Winter Storm Looked Like Snow

It?s the depths of winter here in the Barossa?, a cold and?wet one. On 12th July?2016 a?sudden hail storm passed through Rowland Flat and surrounding towns leaving snow-like trails. This was nothing compared to the hail that fell exactly four years ago to the day in a bizarre coincidence. The freak hail storm only?affected a very narrow band of the Barossa Ranges including our property on Steingarten?Road, Rowland Flat. It hailed so much in 2012 it?really did look like snow!

It’s the depths of winter. We recently had a sudden hail storm pass through and plenty of rain has saturated Barossa Valley soils.

This time of year is almost busier for us than vintage as the majority of wines sold at cellar door are winter warming fortifieds. We pride ourselves on our?extensive range of bulk fortified wines suitable for drinking now or further ageing in your own barrel. There are six wine styles?sold by the litre for people to perfect their home barrel blends. Many customers return with their own container and we?sell reusable plastic containers (2, 5, 10, 20 Litre).

Ron Liebich continually makes large batches of bulk?blends to keep up with demand by masterfully blending fresh 2015/2016 fortified wines with old museum stocks stored in the depths of the barrel shed. All fortifieds are?produced from estate grown grapes left to fully ripen naturally in the vineyard.??Fortified wines are made from four different grape varieties producing different flavour profiles ranging from aromatic, floral and sweet to spicy and nutty.

There are seven?types of fortified available in bulk that suit barrel ageing; ruby, tawny, and white styles and they all have unique features, colours and flavours.?The wine you choose will depend on your taste preference and whether it is used to season a new keg, as a base wine ?or for topping up a barrel.

Ruby Grenache ? ? ? Unwooded Grenache, perfect rejuvenator for over-oaked and aged barrels

Ron?s Blend? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?Traditional Tawny style aged 2 years, perfect for topping up most barrels

Ron?s / Keg Blend? ?Rich semi-aged tawny, some woody notes?(2/3 Ron?s + 1/3 Keg Blend)

Keg Blend? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?Rich tawny? aged?5 years, developing woody notes, good for a starting barrel

Semillon ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Sweet Sherry (Apera) style aged 2 years with fresh toffee and nutty flavours

Muscat ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ???Youthful sweet style with floral, apricot and citrus flavours (Muscat?Gordo?grapes)

Frontignac? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Youthful sweet style with?floral tropical and musk flavours (Red Frontignac grapes)

We invite you to visit cellar door to taste these wines in addition to more than 10 bottled fortified wines ranging in age from one to thirty years old. A sweet treat indeed!
