Bouquet of ripe plums, cherries, chocolate and vanilla spice. Full-bodied with fine tannins, excellent fruit length, and a smooth silky finish.
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.
A premium single vineyard wine from 100% Shiraz planted by Ron Liebich. Vines are hand-pruned and receive minimal irrigation. The vines grow on heavy black biscay soil at Rowland Flat on the eastern foothills of the Barossa.
This wine is named "Leveret", the French term for a baby hare, which narrowly escape being run over by the tractor from row to row in the vineyard.
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.
