More Information

Liebich is a classic 'old school' winery from the Barossa that is not afraid of producing big flavoured wines that will go the distance. We have been selling Liebich for nearly 20 years at Cloudwine.

Special museum release of 100% Barossa Shiraz from low yielding old vines. Seductive concentrated flavours linger long after the first sip. A classic fruit-driven style with beautiful balance and amazing complexity.

A flagship wine dedicated to Ron's uncle Clarence Walter 'Darkie' Liebich (1920-1988) who encouraged Ron's winemaking abilities. He 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.

Vintage 2012 was an excellent season with moderate yield of 1.2 tonne/acre. Traditional techniques of hand plunging and basket-pressing with no fining or filtration all enhance flavour. This special museum release has matured over five years in various aged American and French hogsheads, producing a multi-layered wine.

Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
