Leconfield is situated in the heart of Australia’s famous Coonawarra with its rich Terra Rosa soil over limestone providing the ideal environment for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard was founded in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who at 76 years of age had the ambition to produce the classic Australian red wine. Time has validated his choice of Coonawarra as a fantastic place to do just that.
The 2018 Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is a Classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon; fine, medium bodied palate, showing the cassis flavours typical of more traditional Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Fine velvety tannins balance the textured sweetness of the fruit. The wine has a tight clean finish and is approachable as a youthful wine but will relish ageing in the medium term.
In 1981, with 65 vintages under his belt, Sydney decided to finally retire and Leconfield was acquired by his nephew, Dr Richard Hamilton, then based in McLaren Vale. Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon remains the flagship wine and today Leconfield’s winemaking direction is driven by highly regarded winemaker, Paul Gordon.
