2018 Leconfield Merlot Coonawarra – The Leconfield vineyard was founded in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who at 76 years of age had the dream to produce classic Australian red wine. Time has validated his choice of Coonawarra as a fantastic place to do just that. Today the estate is planted predominantly to Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller patches of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Shiraz and complemented with the white varieties of Riesling and Chardonnay.
Leconfield has developed a reputation of being amongst the best producers of Merlot in Australia. They are continually evolving their style to give length with finesse in this limited release wine.
Ripe, fragrant nose showing cinnamon and cloves overlaying cherry fruit. This is a flavoursome Merlot with a full flavour of ripe plums and round, long tannins that provide persistence and length. It retains elegance and finesse.
Beautifully finessed for youthful enjoyment and well structured for aging complexity over 8-10 years.
