Leconfield Coonawarra was established by noted oenologist, Sydney Hamilton, in the southern half of the Coonawarra strip. The vineyard occupies some of the area’s richest terra rossa soil over limestone, a composition for which Coonawarra is famous. It's always a challenge to find a great drinking Australian Merlot at a reasonable price; this 2018 Leconfield Merlot fits the bill perfectly.
This is a medium-bodied, flavoursome red wine with silky smooth texture, savoury undertones and quality tannins thanks to influence of some French and American oak. A soft and approachable wine from Leconfield which should provide plenty of drinking pleasure over the next decade.
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.
