2017 Leconfield Cabernet Merlot Coonawarra – 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 classic Australian red wine. Time has validated his choice of Coonawarra as a fantastic place to do just that.
Spicy choc-mint nose with integrated subtle oak. Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a backbone of cassis overlayed with plum fruits from Merlot. There is an intriguing element of forest-floor complexity.
A fine round palate showing fruit sweetness. Medium to full bodied in structure, it has fine, silky tannins and a great persistence of flavour.
A delicious wine to have at a long Sunday lunch with your favourite roast, oxtail casserole, and enough earthiness to go with a little grated truffle over an Italian or Spanish inspired meal.
Very approachable on release or enjoy it over the next 8 or so years as it matures.
